My Name is Wendy, Freaks

Typog­ra­phy and illus­tra­tion aren’t mutu­ally exclu­sive. The two inter­twine as we see illus­tra­tors and design­ers alike cre­at­ing hand drawn, one-of-a-kind type. My Name is Wendy is a French group formed from the col­lab­o­ra­tion of two inde­pen­dent graphic design­ers, Car­ole Gau­tier and Eugénie Favre. Together, they cre­ate visual iden­ti­ties, pic­tures, pat­terns and printed material.

Freaks is My Name is Wendy’s cus­tom alpha­bet using vec­tor shapes and sketches. On their web­site, they explain it as, “...hybridiza­tion that reveals a tense prac­tice between spon­tane­ity “traf­fick­ing” forms (the idea of ​​a form against another but also the idea of ​​travel), home of the acci­dent and the search for a for­mal bal­ance moti­vated.” If you look closely, you can see the push and pull of the graphite and flat shapes. It’s a lovely bal­ance and a really excit­ing typeface.
