Check out our interview with Blessed Print and find out more about their journey in handwritten calligraphy.
Could you tell us about yourself? Where are you from, what do you do, etc.?
I am 36. I live in Moldova near the capital in a peaceful village. We founded an eco-community here. It is a country of sweet fruits and beautiful people.
How did your design journey begin?
I have been working in design all my life. Being a child, I created a web site for my high school. I noticed that I loved to design and started my journey. After that I found a job at web agency and helped them to design web sites, and after that I started working for an advertising agency. I then quit and started working as a freelance designer. It was really hectic and I used to do more then 10 orders simultaneously. However, 3 years ago my clients disappeared suddenly and I didn’t know what to do and how to earn my money. As an optimist, I decided to look for another path, and that is how I started creating fonts here on TheHungryJpeg.

Where do you usually find your inspiration?
Family – It is the first source for inspiration. They always support me. Environment is also very important for me. As we are living in a quiet place, we can hear birds singing and breathe fresh air.

Any favourite design references that you can share that might be helpful for other designers as well?
Nature. Probably the only reference… Of course it doesn’t teach you particular things like fonts or other designs, but it will definitely teach you harmony. It is the only tool that can bring you far.

What are the most common design problems that you face?
The most common problem is that people try to be like someone else instead of searching for their own way.

Final question, do you have any advice or tips for anyone starting to sell their designs?
Just start. It is long process. Step by step with patience you can achieve great results. Never believe that you can become a superstar fast. Focus on you direction and continue your job. I would like to recommend the book; Hegarty on Creativity: There Are No Rules.
