Hi! My name is Aftri Marriska and I’m a self-taught illustrative lettering artist based in Pontianak – Indonesia. My work is seen as playful and intricate, and has been featured on social media accounts such as Goodtype, Handmadefont, and Kaligrafina.

When I’m not making fun clients’ stuffs, you may find me selling on Etsy and such, making plans to move to Sweden by creating postcards series, and collaborating with my peers for projects such as More Than Numbers.

Want to work together? Feel free to tell me your big idea by filling this form or shoot me an email to design@aftrimarriska.com.

Available For:

  • Art Licensing
  • Editorial (Print and Online)
  • Logo Design
  • Merchandise Design
  • Signage
  • Social Media Graphics
  • Share The Progress, for this week's #GoodtypeTuesday. So happy that @goodtype and @dotgridco came up with this prompt today to celebrate #worksinprogress and #analoglettering💃

If you've been following my work for quite some time, you know that I always start my work with analog pencil sketch. Lately I've been learning to finish my lettering digitally, but nothing beats the feeling of finishing the whole piece on paper 💙💛
.
.
Here's some of the artists that I think contribute a lot to lettering community by inspiring us in analog style: @stefankunz @homsweethom @lisa_quine @tarwane @jamesllewis @prspctv_cllctv ❤❤❤

Swipe to see more of my process for this pencil sketch 😉

  • Swedish Postcard No.25 : LAGOM. It's a Swedish word that has no direct translation in English, but loosely translated as "just enough", or as my Swedish friends say "not too much, not too little."
.
.
Here's an example of how to use "lagom" in conversation: "How much coffee do you want? Lagom." | "How much time does Aftri need to finish this Swedish postcard project? Lagom." 😂 And for me particularly, it is the way I finished this piece. Not too many details, but not too little as well. How well am I practicing this concept? 😉

About Swedish Postcard: I'm making postcards about Sweden as a passion project, since October 2018. It is based on my experience and stories while I lived in Sweden back in 2013-2015. At this time, while gradually adding all of the postcards, you can view the project on my website: aftrimarriska.com/swedish-postcard.

Tack = Thanks. Some swedish words sound a lot bettter when it is repeated. You'll hear lots of "Tack tack" in Sweden.

Sending this thank you card for my insta bestie @florifama who makes my lettering journey a lot less lonely ❤❤ Hopefully one day we can really meet somewhere in the world and do murals together! Thanks to @katiemadethat and @ilanagriffo for such a lovely prompt this week!
