Old & New Project:
Lucky to be part of this project with such amazing talent. Check them out here: Old & New Project
2011 was full of unexpected change & a flood of unexpected firsts. Sure, some might challenge that I had a rocky start, perhaps too many accidents (even for an accident prone individual, like myself) but if art school taught me anything was to embrace the happy accidents, and to see the beauty in the unexpected.
This year’s highlights include my first font released to the wild, and even more wild, it made an amazing debut on the Top 50 Hot New Fonts list! While on the subject of great career moments – Martha Stewart tweeted a picture of my logo on an apron for her 2 million followers to see… And perhaps the biggest change of all was trading my high-heels and formal black pants for boots and skinny jeans (a first I had promised myself would NEVER happen).
This year I discovered the joys (and pains) of bringing the dog into work… And while on the subject of dogs, I was trampled by two of them, and broke my first bone! And yes, I now have to mention getting hit by a car.
In the midst of all these changes and unexpected surprises, the most beautiful one was revealed: I have the greatest friends in the world. Old and new, you have truly inspired me in so many ways! You’ve all stuck around for tears and laughs, and sometimes tears with laugh (ok far too many tears with laugh!), bike riding (and crashing), and dancing, eating, singing, working, and trips to the O.R., the E.R., and the B.A.R.
So cheers for 2011, a wild and fabulous year! Cheers to family, to great new friends, and old… to happy accidents and unexpected surprises, and here’s to an equally exciting and more fabulous 2012!
Last week I finally released Aguas Frescas into the font world.

If it feels like I’ve deserted my tumblr, you can blame this guy. Then again with that cute face… you’ll just have to forgive us both!
