Cultivated Mind: A Wonderful Font Gem!

These past few weeks have been a blur of lots of work, new projects and just plain INSPIRATION!

I've been working on new projects and with new projects come new tools.

I recently discovered Creative Market and if you don't know about it (I'm sure you do, I'm always behind with these things) you should definitely check them out. I bought a font family there a while back and have been IN LOVE with it. I've been using it on a lot of my marketing materials lately and some of my new projects, like these Owl Greeting Cards and Owl Notebooks.

 

These Owl Notebooks happened to be featured on Paper Crave last week and Cindy Kinash of Cultivated Mind happened to see them. Cindy is the AMAZING lady behind Cultivated Minda Type & Design Foundry that focuses on creating beautiful handwritten & calligraphy fonts and handmade artwork. She designed the font I used for these two designs and reached out and thanked me on twitter for using her fonts in my projects.

She was genuinely excited about the way I had been using her Local Market font and decided to tweet and share my notebooks on her social media as well. As a result I got some great exposure and a couple of people had to have my Owl Notebooks too. Isn't social media amazing that way?

As if that wasn't enough, Cindy then reached out to me via email and sent me a FONT CARE PACKAGE!

Now, if you didn't know it, I'm a serious font nerd and this was RIGHT up my alley, specially since I had been trying to decide which one of her fonts I wanted to purchase next just the night before. I mean, take a look at some of the screen shots for these...



 

They are chock full of EXTRAS! That's right, you don't only get a font, you get illustrations and banners and labels and all sorts of stuff!

This is the stuff font heaven is made of.

I will be going out of town for my brother's wedding on Friday and since my grandparents are coming up from Costa Rica, I'll have plenty of people who want to watch my boys so I'll get some ME time to play around with new things! I've already been planning the things I'd like to work on: a top secret project, new card designs and now, definitely playing around with some of these fantastic fonts. 

Stop by Cindy's page on Creative Market and take a look at all the other font packs she's got in her shop. I'd be surprised if you don't find something you just HAVE to have.

Have a wonderful week!

Love what you did with the font! Creative Market is great. I thought I’d mention too that getting on their mailing list is awesome—they give away free fronts, icons, brushes and more from the site each week!
