The making of Mimosa
Periodically when I have created some letterforms that I really like for a job, I will finish off the remainder of characters and make a font. The font Mimosa came about as the result of a packaging project based upon the revival of vintage cosmetic labels. Given four of the uppercase letters and a handful more of the lowercase, I took the challenge of conceiving and executing the remainder of the glyphs (individual instances of each character are called glyphs) that would make up a complete font.
So I don't disappoint the brunch lovers among you: the eponymous libation is prepared by filling half a champagne flute with chilled sparkiling wine, topping off with orange juice and garnishing with a slice of strawberry.
