FAVORITE TYPEFACE

Right now, Minion Pro, most definitely. I compare Minion Pro to my favorite, most comfortable pair of jeans.

WHAT INSPIRES ME

When people do the unexpected, in a good way. And, when I wake up and have no idea how the day is going to play out.

 

PERFECT DAY

Cold, rainy, with a warm cup of coffee and jazz tunes in the background. I may or may not be designing something. Perhaps I should live in Seattle?

 

FAVORITE AUSTIN RESTAURANT

The Frisco! I feel like I've traveled back in time every time I go.

 

DESIGN MUSE

Jessica Hische, sigh. She's amazing.

how it all began

Eight years ago, Brandi and Kendra found themselves teaching a magazine course at one of the best public high schools in the nation. If you’ve ever been around teenagers for more than five minutes, you know they like to ask questions. A LOT of questions. So, after fielding the answers to about 230,000 questions regarding design, layout, and the importance of using the grid system, Brandi and Kendra thought they’d like to start creating a few projects of their own. TypeJar began as a creative outlet for Brandi and Kendra, and now, they can't imagine graphic design not being a part of their lives.

For more information, or for a quote for your next project, shoot us an email at info@typejarstudio.com. Or, if you are one of those people who like to actually hear a voice, call us at 512-508-3902. Have a wonderful day!
