Chill vibes, chocolate and iced café cubano
Hey friends! It’s been two months since I started Pilcrow. Writing every week was definitely a new exercise for me, but I like the process and the things I learned — hope you liked what you read so far.
Today we have a magazine, an open-air exhibition, and a website, let’s go!
It’s been about three months since I didn’t work on a side project, my personal website, or an experiment. I took a day off to enjoy more time with my family for the Easter holidays and take a small break, and I got to say, it feels good!
I love to try new recipes with espresso, but this weekend, I chose to keep my all-time favorite when having a chill weekend: an iced café cubano.
This week I reworked a project we did with Specify during a hackathon which implies design systems and OpenAI’s GPT-3, I will do my best to ship it in the next few days.

I love the pattern and intense contrast of the cover, designed by Hoang Nguyen and David Gobber. The collection of hand-drawn optical illusions definitely kept my attention, as well as the wide spectrum of text produced.

We already saw Margot Lévêque’s work on Pilcrow #6 with Romie, but now it’s time to see Ninna in action — in addition to Neue Haas Unica by Toshi Omagari.
I love the combination of these two typefaces, highlighted by the great layout designed by Stephanie Specht.
Let’s conclude this edition with web design work, showcasing Founders Grotesk (Klim Type) and Alpina (Grilli Type). Through a successful collaboration with Sons & Co, Kelsey McClellan, and Michelle Maguire, Turner Duckworth created a website full of personality through a series of images that tell their story.
That’s all, friends — have a great Sunday! And thank you for your support since the launch of Pilcrow, it means a lot 🖤
