I watched the documentary "Helvetica" today about the font and...I was enthralled.  I think I'm in love...or inspired...as I watched, I got butterflies in my stomach.  I just had to make something!  This font was so beautiful, and as I sat soaking in the goodness of Helvetica I felt that whatever I would make be amazing...such awesomeness just had to rub off on me.

(Yeah...I'm a weird graphic designer.)

So!  A purse I made a few months ago fell apart, so I decided to create a new one with this gorgeous "Hunting Scene" Cowtan & Tout fabric a fellow classmate of mine gave me.   It's lined with some kind of red quilted fabric.

On to the photos!







I'd love to hear your comments/criticisms.  The flap is too big, and so the straps get in the way...but that's my only complaint Smiley

God bless!

Your bag totally ROCKS MY SOCKS OFF!  I love it.  I need a bag like that...maybe a little more guyish, but that same style.  Helvetica is a gorgeous font as well  Grin

No criticisms here.  I love the style.  I think the too large flap actually adds to its look.

Lol...! once accidentally picked up the book "Basic Typography   A Design Manual" By James Craig.  I was binge buying at my Half Price Books Store and they had this book smooshed on the clearance shelf with the PHOTOgraphy books knowing (sneaky sneaky staff) that I would ADD and buy it too by accident (what? It has some of the same letters!)
The publishers should have known that putting the title in all caps would cause my brain to read what it wanted to.

Awesome bag by the way.  The fabric rocks!
