Maricor/Maricar - Bert and Ernie

Maricor/Maricar are Maricor and Maricar Manalo. A Sydney-based studio that create wonderful hand crafted illustrations and type using embroidery and paper cut outs. Their embroidered type is particularly impressive and the way in which they translate their fresh use of color and pattern through needle and thread is really wonderful.

Over the years they have produced work for album covers, animations, music videos, posters and exhibitions and currently it seems that their work in type is in hot demand after working with the likes of Wired, UNICEF and Esquire over the last few months. Check out more of their work here and make sure to take a look at my personal favourite of theirs – work for the Jim Henson tribute show ‘The Lovers, The Dreamers, and Me’ here.
