“People who love to eat are always the best people.”
There’s a few things that I throughly enjoy in life. Friendship, sunsets, fun times with family, a whole number of things. And well, food happens to be one of them. Especially food cooked with love and appreciation, food that’s tasty with loads of flavour, food that’s different and exciting to eat. But there’s one type of food that really takes the cake. And that’s Japanese food.
So when Melissa of Momo Sushi asked me to do chalk lettering on their wall, I jumped at the chance! Momo Sushi‘s handrolls were absolutely delicious, and the quaint shop front based in Glenferrie road was so gorgeously designed that I couldn’t resist! We organised a meeting to decide on what lettering style we wanted, and also what quote we were going to place on the walls. Once that was decided, all that was left to do was to do the lettering!
We met up on a rainy Saturday afternoon, and I prepared myself to bring some typographic joy to the walls. Four hours, 2 sushi rolls, a green tea latte and a packet of wasabi later, I completed my design. Melissa was very satisfied with the result, and my stomach was very satisfied with all the Japanese goodies.
Hopefully this is only the start of more chalk lettering, and that I can do more lettering designs in the future! Also, I would love you to visit Momo Sushi and take a picture next to the chalk lettering and tag us on facebook or instagram! And while you’re there, make sure you have a green tea latte and a tea prawn hand roll for me!
