Januari is a Los Angeles based design studio that manufactures handmade furniture and accessories for home, office and hospitality spaces. The forms, materials and craft of the studio draw from the spirit of the “unknown”, with focus on the understanding of how objects interact with mental and physical space. The pieces are inspired by the exploration of the intersection of functional, sculptural and material pleasure.

Much like the honeysuckle flower, Honey has a striking appearance that alludes to its tubular shape before the flower blooms. Once bloomed the petals open to reveal soft curved petals and spike-like filaments. This typeface uses simple forms with experimentation in thick and thin points and unique approaches to how letterforms are drawn.
This demo font isn’t perfect but neither are we as creatives and I truly like it better that way. Have fun with it and don’t yell at me for the kerning or imperfections.

Almeda is a part of a series of spec branding projects inspired by the music that are on my usual rotation. This specific brand revolves around a fictional sustainable fashion label called Almeda from a track on Solange’s album When I Get Home. A song that pays homage to Houston’s Almeda neighborhood.
“Solange draws heavily from the roots and traditions of her Southern black culture, specifically the influence of her hometown of Houston.“ — Pitchfork

As a creative agency, we’re often creating for others. While we take pride in the work we develop, we often yearn for the ability to create without guardrails. To create storytelling in our process, controlled our way. As such, we have embarked on a passion project. A project where we make up the rules, the product, the direction and the outcome.
With quarantine newly trapping us in our homes, we unanimously felt a connection to light. The way it makes you feel. The way it sets a tone. It serves as the foundation for a space, the lever we pull to create something unique. So, we decided to create our own lamp and brand experience around the idea of human centered design that connects to your moods.
