Today is Erik Marinovich’s birthday, so I figured the best thing I could give him was a post about how awesome he is, because it’s the truth. I’m not even sure how we met, though I’m sure Twitter was involved in some way. I’ve posted/worked with Erik a number of times, but if you’re unfamiliar with him he’s one part of Friends of Type, shares a studio space with Jessica Hische and has some of the best damn hand-writing I’ve ever seen. Plus I love his interpretation of Always With Honor’s fox logo!

He recently sent me a little care package, complete with a fully lettered package with an exclusive Friends of Type tote bag inside. I’m happy to admit that I didn’t throw the envelope above away and I fully intend on framing it. It’s a work of art that was made exclusively for me, and I’m proud to show it off. Happy birthday Erik, you talented bastard, and keep up the great work.

Update: One more thing. You should also check out this print he did for 8 Faces, and download the wallpaper he made to go along with it. This guy is unstoppable.

    I nominate Travis Millard as a challenger for having the best hand-writing ever. I find myself ordering from his http://www.fudgefactorycomics.com just so I can get an envelope or poster tube with my name emblazoned by his hand.

    @Joey – I have a Travis Millard envelope! Travis is also amazing, just in a different way.
