Hello everyone! Today, I’m excited to share with you my process for a piece made possible by the awesome typefaces found in the 21 Best Selling Beautiful Fonts Bundle.

The combination of raw, brush-based typefaces, along with the delicate ornaments of the script typefaces gives us a wide range of visual ambiances to play with. Sprinkle that with the occasional layered slab serif, and a few vector ornaments, and we have ourselves a plan for a great piece!

With the new year, other than working on my resolution, I’ve also explored a bit what it means to me to be a designer. I started on the lighter side of the question, and came across this quote:

"A mathematician is a device for turning coffee into theorems."

— Alfréd Rényi (via Wikiquotes)

This one struck a chord for some reason, and I came up with my own variation on the theme:

"A designer is a device that turns tea into creativity."

The rest simply derived from there. I hope you had as much fun following along than I had writing, and that you learned a few tricks along the way!

Don't forget the bundle, and let me know what you think of the tutorial.

As usual, you can have an up-close look in the attachments.
