Sweater Letters

Alright, this may not be the most seasonal post, for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere (though there have been flash floods and hail this week in the UK) but it is winter in Sydney, where Maricor and Maricar Manalo are based.

MaricorMaricar, a ‘twin sized’ studio, make these wonderfully tactile illustrations using embroidery. Some of their work features script lettering that uses coloured threads produce subtle gradients. Combining their passion for sewn type, patterns and winter sweaters (or ‘jumpers’ in the UK), they’ve come up with a new alphabet series called Sweater Letters.

They take commissions—if it is getting chily where you are.
