DIY minimalist art print

Oh, I was so happy to find that the minimalist style font Claxton by MikeHill is available as Free Goods of the Week on Creative Market! I downloaded it right away as I love the minimalist vibe, and am a minimalist myself. Hmm.. all my friends would not agree on this, but I call myself a cozy Hygge minimalist. I love to surround myself with things and people I love. As fonts!

I’m almost a bit embarrassed by the total simplicity of this design, but I love it so much. I will post a pic in the Wallifyer Tribe when I framed it. This is truly a simple and easy design, but with lots of umpf.

Minimalist design

A minimalist design may at first seem “easy” and “simple”, but it’s actually very complicated to achieve. As you have very few elements to play with, the minimalist look is very delicate and hard to balance (yeah, I’m an art historian… I leave it at this).

One element that is often used in minimalist design is typography, that is designing with fonts. Finding the “right” minimalist font is essential for a great minimalist look. That is why I got so pumped up by Claxton! Claxton font is just perfect for minimalist typography! I love how it is clean but yet interesting with the different spacings and negative space. I will not get into difficult typography definitions, I promise. So just relax and enjoy some relaxing and joyful minimalist digital crafting with ease!
