I am so proud to announce that on Sunday night I released my very first typeface on Creative Market. Designing type has been a dream of mine for several years and this year as my New Years resolution I promised myself I’d make it happen. It took months of hard work and lots and lots of feedback, encouragement and technical help – notably from Star St. Germain – but it’s finally done.
Nothing could have prepared me for the response. Sunday night I announced the launch of my typeface to the members of the Minted Design Community in a Facebook post thanking them for all the support they’ve given me over the last few years. They responded with an overwhelming number of congratulations and even my first few sales!
I don’t know exactly what makes the team at Creative Market decide to designate a product as “Hand Picked” but early Monday morning I received an email letting me know that my font had been selected as a “hand picked” product. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the support the incredible Minted Designers gave me directly lead to Creative Market noticing my product.
I’m so incredibly excited by this milestone in my life. The support shown by my friends and the design community have proven to me that this really is and area I should continue work in. My next typeface is already in the works and I can’t wait to finish it and share it with all of you.
