Oliver Jeffers is one of my favourite children’s book creators. These images are from his book, “The Incredible Book Eating Boy”, a book about a boy who becomes smarter and smarter, the more books he consumes. Jeffers’ series of books are delightfully illustrated, and feature some beautiful hand-drawn typography too.

Here’s some more clever hand-drawn typography, loaded with personality and charm. Have a look at the New York-based creator’s portfolio here or his Tumblr here.

Many of you would already know that we’ve been on the hunt lately to find a new Boheemian to join our team. It’s been such a pleasure meeting so many talented people and pouring through their very inspiring portfolios. One of my favourite projects was this one by Esther Turnbull. For her final year university piece Esther made by hand a range of felt textiles, photographed them and then featured them in her own art book. The textures and colours were just gorgeous; literally took my breath away!

Great typographic postcards, the brainchild of the very clever Linzie Hunter. Check out her website for more inspiring illustrations, maps and ornamental type.

I have developed an interest recently in fonts with ‘ball terminals’, having used script font ‘Bellevue’ recently in some body cream packaging for One Seed organic fragrances. It led me to the discovery of Jessica Hische’s font, ‘Buttermilk’ – a bold and feminine script typeface which can be purchased from myfonts.com.

I’ve seen a couple of reviews out there about font designer Jessica Hische, where people seem to have found themselves in an expected state of delighted euphoria, having explored this particular young woman’s portfolio. Her work is inspiring in every way: it makes me want to own it, see more, be better and somehow one day make her my best friend. She produces a constantly rich and quirky stream of new ideas – daily, in fact, at her blog (dailydropcap.com) where she offers the world a new drop cap every day to enjoy.

Jessica’s portfolio is online at jessicahische.com.
