Swap x Type


SWAP x TYPE is a collaboration project featuring 30 type and calligraphy artists in the Philippines, all celebrating the beauty of handmade letters to inspire your every day. It's such a great honor for me to be part of this project!

We were tasked to design something that inspires us. It's no secret that I'm a morning person, so of course I wanted to highlight my favorite part of the day!:P I'm an early sleeper and an early riser--- I wake up at 5:30-6am every day, then start with some breakfast. I love breakfast so much that PJ and I even had a breakfast wedding. (He's not a morning person, so I'm grateful that he made my dream wedding come true :P). We always start each day with "Good Morning, Love", and this is what inspired me to use it for my Swap Watch design. :)




What gets you up in the morning? Whether it is your work, your favorite person, your family, your passions, or even just a good plate of breakfast, I hope this watch inspires you to have those reasons to wake up happily everyday. :)


My Good Morning watercolored typography design comes in 3 strap colors: white, navy, and teal
