Adding some new strings to my bow. Could this be a new career?
I decided recently to branch out a little and have started to sell some design products over at Creative Market. It’s a marketplace where fellow designers and photographers can sell their items to other designers. It’s a cool place to be and the quality of items for sale are usually very high.
The first items I have for sale are Photoshop mockup files of Apple products. These are great, I have used them extensively on this site to showcase the websites I’ve designed and produced. So I thought, hang on, I can make my own! I have released a series of 8 “Everyday Mockups” which are also available as a bundle.
I’ve also had an interest in type design for a number of years and I hope to start releasing a few font families over the coming months. My first, Carrig Rough, is a hand drawn typeface, it is influenced by classic letterforms carved into stone and weathered by time. As I type this, I am working on a more refined version of the same font. This will be a neoclassical typeface that would rival popular fonts such as Trajan and Adobe Garamond Pro.
In our first chat it was obvious that he understood my ideas and would bring his own creativity to develop a bespoke, unique website for my bookshop.
