I went on a bike ride this morning looking for some inspiration. I've been wanting to create my own typeface lately. And of course, Portland has an abundance of beautiful hand-painted, vintage, art deco, you name it type all over her buildings.
It was a chilly ride, with a couple of mandatory stops along the way (those darn drawbridges). I feel inspired and lucky to live in a place where a simple bike ride throws ideas (and delicious coffee and pastries and thrift stores and......) at you.
