Neue Markt

sieleth: neue markt


Hello! Happy Monday, how's everyone doing today? I know it's been a while since I did one of these, but I came across this picture whilst researching inspiration for a project I'm working on and it's been calling my name ever since, so much so that I finally decided to do something about it!

Neue Markt, like the name hopefully correctly implies, stands for New Market, an imaginary pop-up shop that sells trendy pieces of foreign fashion from all across the world. I imagine this would be the go-to place for people who don't like to stick to one style, specially those countries that have a somewhat cohesive sense of style, so this is for the adventurers who aren't willing to conform!

I think, one of the things I liked the most about doing this, was that the name was heavily inspired by the neue that accompanies some of the grotesques in my type collection, yet I went with the comfort-tier of the geometrics with Futura. I love including little easter eggs like that in my work, and I really like how this one came out! What do you think? Let me know! 

P.S.: Not to bring any pressure or anything, but Valentine's Day is right around the corner, so if you haven't gotten anything yet, may I suggest my Oooh Valentine's print set? They're all digital downloads so you can print them yourself at home or even set them as your phone wallpaper!

Ooh Valentines


Hello everyone! Hope last month went great for everyone and that february will, too, bring good things for you and I. Personally, I can't say bad things about this month since it's my birthday month and this year I'm turning twenty-seven ;)

February also brings Valentines Day, and though I don't have a special someone to celebrate it with, I always wanted to make something special for valentines day for you guys! So, I'm proud to say that this year I'm bringing you two valentines day themed prints! Ooh Baby! is a fun and flirty print that you can get either as a print or a postcard style print where you can write a special note for whoever you want! Self Love is the second print you can get, a little self-love (duh) manifesto to keep around for when you need to be reminded of how great and important you are (which ties in a bit with what I said at the end of this post).

I hope you'll like both of these! I'm so excited to be launching my very own mini-shop with these! Please show them lots of love and let me know if there's anything in particular you'd like to see me do/make/create! Much love - alex
