Melbourne-based designer and artist Maria Montes is passionate about illustration and letterforms. Her artworks are based on ideas, where the process becomes vital as it explains the design rationale behind each piece. Maria finds inspiration in the community around her, and strength in the reciprocal support of other women. She creates intricate, nostalgic and downright FUN lettering and illustrations out of her studio in Fitzroy, where she also runs workshops teaching others the art of writing. In 2018, Maria released commercially Green Fairy, a seven-style chromatic font family highly ornamented for display purposes.
Ruggero Magrì studied graphic design and art direction at Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan. During those years, he developed an interest in typography, which led him to pursue courses in calligraphy, lettering and type design. In 2018, he attended the TypeParis intensive course, receiving a certificate with distinction for his project, Cimer. In 2019 he worked as a type designer at Typofonderie and he won the SOTA Catalyst Award.
