Where Embroidery Meets Typography

Last night I was reading the latest issue of How magazine, the Typography & Interactive Design issue (on newsstands until August 20th), and I came across a story about two designers who combine graphic design with embroidery – so in my wheelhouse!

Maricor and Maricar Manalo, twins, set up their Sydney-based studio in 2010 after a stint at the design and film studio, Mathematics. Their work has appeared most recently in GOOD magazine, Esquire UK and the Land of Nod, a children’s furniture retailer affiliated with Crate & Barrel, who’s blog shows step-by-step how the twins developed the catalog cover.
