The Birth of Type

Adobe, the leading developer of design applications, commissioned us for a social illustration of Venus by Botticelli, the mascot and inspirational imagery behind one of their flagship products, Illustrator.

Composed of over 1,300 unique submissions of user’s favourite fonts, generated from the Adobe Facebook page for Illustrator, this project was literally created by the users, for the users. We couldn’t be more thrilled with how it turned out.

She looks very similar like Simonetta Cattaneo, daughter of the Genovese Gaspare Cattaneo della Volta. Hm. Perhaps it is not just a coincidence...

Beautiful work anyway, and a great project!
