An experimental typeface totally composed by vegetal elements.
Published:
A project originally started in 2010, as a custom font for an eco-design event. The project ended with the refusal by the client, and I stopped to develope the letters. Initially uploaded as single artwork with the first three letters on Deviantart, it reached an unbelievable amount of views for me at the time (over nine thousands) and a lot of comments asking me "when the whole alphabet?" I  always answered with a "dunno, gonna think about it". And kept procrastinating it.

Then I  decided to give the project another chance and I started to work again on the letters, uploading all the wip process on my Facebook page, receiving a very good feedback about it. After the publication it has become and still is one of my most successful project, and it brought me popularity and commissions, and features on design books. I owe a lot to this project, and it's still one of my favourite ones.
 
Recently I've totally restored the project, and the typeface  has been improved and redesigned from scratch.
 
Hope you like my Brushwood Typeface. 
Between several features on blogs, usage for art festivals (like Poster Punch, you can see the project HERE)
and sales to private clients for different purposes (once it has been used as typeface for the logo of a garden)
the best achievement for me it has been to see it used by the magazine Wired Italy (nov.2011 issue).
The mag was (and is) an inspiration since I started for its amazing use of design and illustration into it
and having it as my real first big client commission ever has  been a dream.
