Ode to Frederic Goudy

Design Challenge:

Create two cards that exemplified and illustrated the style and idea of a favorite font. All design elements must be created with the font.

Design Solution:

Frederic Goudy’s Old Style is a classic, and he was quite a character, so what better subject to contemplate and create from. Goudy was very influenced by the British Arts & Crafts movement. For that reason I chose a palette referencing textile work by the English textile artist, William Morris. Working with the elegant contours of the letters was a pleasure.
