About Lulaloo

At university, I studied graphic design and that was, in fact, my first job. I moved to London when I was 30 and continued working as a freelance designer. It was there and then that I started experimenting with watercolours and more artistic designs. A few years later, I moved to Switzerland, where I have taken several painting courses and continue to discover the fascinating world of watercolours.

Always happy to help! We all started somewhere on this crazy font journey and your type layouts are looking awesome! One thing I find that helps is to step back and look at the type as just another element in the composition. Then ask normal composition questions, is it balances, does it work in the space etc? Usually once I stop reading the words and start looking at the shape they get easier to work with :)

Hi Maria, Thank you so much for the likes on some of my submissions in the New Perspectives Challenge. I really love your crowd scenes and the use of abstraction, color and texture to bring so much depth and interest to what could seem like a mundane subject. They are truly lovely! Good Luck in the Challenge! -Rebecca

Hi Maria, thanks for the like on "Top of the World" – much appreciated. Your painted studies of people are just amazing – they have a bit of a quiet melancholy feel to them – and I eat that stuff up :)
