Hard to believe that 10 years have passed since joining Fontstruct. The years have truly flown by and typography went from an unknown, to a delightful hobby. Many many thanks to those who helped me learn and grow on this platform, it's been such a fun adventure with such a positive impact. To celebrate, may I present "magenta" an art deco font for any typing needs. Please enjoy
This also marks a little turning point. The name "time.peace" was chosen at random and was honestly something I’d never been thrilled with. After much thinking, a new moniker is being adopted: "tortoiseshell."
"tortoiseshell" pulls from the tortoiseshell butterfly. Butterflys are seen as both symbols of time and of peace, making it a simple homage to the old title. There is another connection to tortoiseshell glasses, a style popularized in the 1920's, an era that has been incredibly riveting with its Art Deco movement. Lastly, there is a genus of the tortoiseshell butterfly native to my home.
"tortoiseshell typography" looks build upon old ideas while also growing and evolving into the future.
