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.
I like working with Paulo. It’s straightforward. It’s quick and thorough. I get results from him that are ready for me to show my management teams for selection, as opposed to first principles discussions.
