My First Font: Sweet Peas by Kate England

Powered by Creative Market

I've always dreamed of making my own font and this summer when I was on holiday I got the chance to dig into the project. On rainy days and sometimes during the evenings, I'd sit down with a cup of tea, turning my calligraphy handwriting into a font that has multilingual support. The font's name, Sweet Peas Font, is inspired by the garden. 

Sweet Peas Font is a bohemian, modern calligraphy font. A hand written artistic typeface, full of energy and playful elegance. It's a free spirit.

ON MY MIND JUST NOW

  • The Ebb & Flow of Creativity: I miss my holiday in August when I had the time and space to be creative just for my own sake. Write pages and pages in longhand. Read. Sit on the garden wall and paint. Make a typeface based on my calligraphy. Pick sweet peas, blackberries and Victoria plums in the garden. Walk to the village. Watch The Crown together. Shared meals. Conversations. On holiday with John. I wish I could have stayed longer.
