Sons and daughters of Extensis let their creative juices flow with Fontspiration in honor of National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. With the school year ending, we knew it would be a hard time to bring kids to us, so we brought our work to them! Parents sat down with their kids to engage them in one of our biggest passions: fonts.
Kids ages 9-13 created custom typographic masterpieces using our Fontspiration app. We thought this would allow us to inspire our children. We were pleasantly wrong. They inspired us!
“Show us your girl power!” Kaia, age 10.
“The future…”Alex, age 12.
“Graphic Designer in the making.” Jarod, age 13.
“Don’t forget to rise to the stars.” Sam, age 10.
“Caught in a web?” Edward, age 9.
“Selfies are important.” Vincent, age 10.
“Positivity.” Ryann, age 11.
We’re impressed! Thanks to all the kids who participated and helped us get inspired.</>
Make your masterpiece!
