Throughout this 2014 year, designers have created for you specific wallpaper calendars, free to download and set in Typofonderie typefaces. Each month, it’s also a great opportunity to ask few questions to our monthly guest designer. For the month of November 2014, it’s Laura Serra who has chosen the Le Monde Livre Classic, designed by Jean François Porchez. She answers to our questions.
Illustration projects by Laura Serra.
Who are you?
I’m Laura Serra, a Sardinian Illustrator and Lettering artist living in Berlin and Oakland. I was born in Southern Germany and made an apprenticeship in Media Design and went to College for Graphic Design.
What inspires you?
Nature inspires me most, second, Music.
Your favorite typeface?
This is quite a difficult question. But currently, I am in love with FF Quixo. Look at it. it’s wonderful.
Your favorite designer?
I’m sorry, but there are so many incredible designers that I adore. A period type designer I’d like to know more of is Giambattista Bodoni. Other than that fella, I like a lot of contemporary type designers. I’m not a type designer, so I guess my view on typefaces is somewhere between the commoner and the artist. I love how Typofonderie teleported Paris into the new century while preserving its grace. Aside from you guys, Laura Meseguer and Frank Grießhammer are just a few of so many I adore. Typographica’s Our Favorites of 2013 shows most of my favorites if you need more names.
Name your favorite book?
I’m currently listening to the audiobook of His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. I love how it has layers of understanding. It’s complicated and incredibly inspiring. When I have time to not stare at my screen I read Handbuch der Beschimpfungen by Dr. Sebastian Freud.
Your favorite place in the world?
Paris. Every time I visited, I felt at home. There is no place like it.
