Quote

Tijdens de zomerdagen verlaten wij het huis niet zonder zonnebrand. Met onze lichte huidjes verbranden wij gemakkelijk en dat willen wij natuurlijk voorkomen.

During the summer we don't leave the house without our sunscreen. Because we have a fair skin we get easily sunburned and of course we want to recent that.

Happy Valentine's Day!

14 Februari is de dag van de liefde. En hoewel je elke dag tegen de liefde van je leven kan zeggen dat je van hem of haar houdt is 14 februari de dag om het extra te zeggen. Met chocolaatjes, bloemen, knuffels of natuurlijk een kaartje. Op het kaartje staat dan vaak al de juiste tekst voor wat je wilt zeggen, en om het extra persoonlijk te maken zet je binnen in de kaart nog een mooie zelfgeschreven tekst. Want hoeveel cadeaus je ook geeft, niets is persoonlijker dat zeggen dat je van hem of haar houdt! 
Wij wensen iedereen een fijne Valentijn!

February 14th is the day of love. Of course you can tell your love you love him/her every day, but today is the day you can do something extra. With chocolate, flowers or a card. In which you write how much you adore the love of your life. Because no matter how much gifts you give, nothing is more personal then saying you love him/her!
We wish everyone a happy Valentine's Day!

Hand lettered birthday card

Soms als er iemand jarig is, is het voor ons een mooie kans om het handletteren te oefenen. Zo is er vandaag een vriendin van Linda jarig. Voor haar heeft ze deze mooie kaart gemaakt. Zo kunnen wij verschillende technieken creëren en krijgen onze naasten bijzondere kaarten!

Sometimes when it's someones birthday it give us a great opportunity to practise our hand lettering. Today a friend of Linda has her birthday. That was a great reason for Linda to design this birthday card!

New: hand lettered notebook

Hoe leuk is dit? Een eerste in opdracht van Elia. Een vriendin van Linda die graag haar notebook mooier gemaakt wilde hebben, nou laat dit maar aan Linda over! Kijk de foto en zie hoe leuk het geworden is. Heb jij iets waarvan je denkt daar wil ik iets moois opgeschreven hebben, stuur ons dan een berichtje!

How fun is this? A personalized diary Linda made for her roommate. If you want to have something personalized with hand lettering let us know in a message!

 

Nieuw ontwerp voor ons manifesto

Aan het begin van onze ontwikkeling van No Ordinary Tales kwam al snel het idee om ons eigen manifesto te ontwikkelen, met zaken die voor ons belangrijk zijn, en daarom goed passen bij No Ordinary Tales.

Weken werden maanden totdat we hier belandde, dat ons manifesto dan eindelijk is vormgegeven. Zelf zijn we er helemaal blij mee, en hopen we snel op een plaatsje bij www.meshprintclub.com om ze ook op papier te kunnen zeefdrukken. We houden jullie op de hoogte!

Wil je ze allemaal zien, klik dan hier.

When we first started our company No Ordinary Tales we've got the idea to make our own manifesto. This mirrors our believes and is therefor a great fit for No Ordinary Tales.

It took us a while but here is our last design and is our manifesto finished! We are really happy with the finished look, and a hoping we can start screen printing soon. We'll keep you posted!

Deze twee en de rest van de ontwerpen kun je hier vinden!
Hopelijk kunnen wij dan bijna beginnen met het zeefdrukken van ons manifesto, zodat ook jullie van onze quotes kunnen genieten.

It has been a while, but we have been working on our manifesto. See the photo's for the two new designs of our manifesto.

Still busy with hand lettering designs!

Last week we looked back on our Manifesto and how all the designs looked. It's been a while since we designed some of them, and we realised we can do a lot better on some. So below are two new designs. These two almost complete the ten. Only one to go!

Instagram Update nr 21

Here are our Instagram photos from last week. It was a week in which a lot of new ideas came to us! We will show them to you soon.

Manifesto update

As you know we made ten illustrated typographic designs that form our manifesto. We know that we want to screen print them, because it gives us more options with colour and paper. But untill it's time to screen print, we're first trying out how these designs look in a frame. And with the first two we're very happy!

Instagram Update nr 19

Another week in which we've been busy on Instagram. It's an amazing place to show all our inspirations en get inspired!

Instagram Update nr 17

A lovely sunny week, but also a lot of rain. Which ment a lot of beautiful clouds hence pretty cloud photos. Not only is the way they look inspiring but also that you never know what will come out.

On sunday Astrid was having dinner in Nijmegen at 'de Firma', a really nice restaurant located near the river "Waal". In the time she was sitting there a beautiful array of clouds passed by.

Floris, beautiful Floris, looking so androgynous that people thought he is a she. Maybe a necklace is not the right accessory for Floris.

Is it a dream or a nightmare? Maybe the way you feel today could decide that.

Manifesto in the making

The last couple of weeks we've been working hard on designing our Manifesto. The Manifesto consists of ten "guidelines" that we live by and want to bring into the world so everyone can apply them in life.
Every guideline is hand lettered by us and here you can see a couple that are close to the end result. We're still figuring out what will be the best way to showcase them. But for now we're very happy with how it looks so far!

New hand lettering designs!

Today we wanted to show two new hand lettering designs that are now ready to be digitized. Both are part of our manifesto. And will be featured on posters and cards.

 

It's friday, so it's Handlettering-day!

In the last weeks we worked out some sketches to these finished designs. We are going to use these on cards, posters or bags. Two of the designs below ar part of our manifesto and the Dear Deer is just some fun design Linda came up with. This handlettering is really great to do!
