Nic Farrell

Already going down a storm with our customers here at Nook & Cranny, Nic Farrell has provided us with postcards, cards and prints with beautiful hand-drawn typography and simple and beautiful illustrations.

Nic has really inspired us to get designing our own fonts again and to start playing around with pens! Follow Nic's blog for updates and sneak peaks at her latest work - Nic has illustrated a few books which are now available in Waterstones! We're thinking of popping down to oogle more of her quirky characters. Also, the very talented Nic has had screen prints and original works of art included in various exhibitions and group shows including a collaborative mural which has now been nominated for the Museums & Heritage awards!
I noticed on Nic's website a poster detailing her love of fonts and fear of nails and stickers and a strong dislike of try-hard indie kids, nestled in the poster was something that rang true to myself also - the words 'grammar' and 'freak'. So, asking as nice as possible, we're lucky enough to have a specially commissioned postcard! We've only had these postcards in about a week and already we only have one left! I think it deserves a special post all to itself, so watch out.
