The design of this double page is referenced to my two chosen designers and it’s based on their signature style and typefaces.

My chosen designers are:

  • Firmin Didot was born in Paris at 14 April 1764. Firmin designed the Didot typeface.


  • Kris Holmes born in Reedley, CA, in 1950. She studied calligraphy at Reed College with Lloyd Reynolds and Robert Palladino, and she studied roman brush writing in a workshop with Fr. Edward Catich In New York. She founded the Bigelow & Holmes foundry in 1976 with Charles Bigelow. Kris Holmes has created over 300 typefaces
