Creative Typography Sketchbook 1

To develop unique hand lettering styles is a personal journey for each artist , what inspires one does not necessarily inspire another. There is a certain charm to handwritten typefaces, a blend of contemporary playfulness without the need to strictly adhere to traditional values of lettering proportions that were governed by the availability of tools. 

Here we explore handwritten typography and see where it takes us.

My starting point here was a vintage advertising tin from cooks& Co which featured a ornamental banner with added flourish and type and I chose to explore just the banner at this point looking at all the different parts that it was made up of . Then I challenged myself to come up with as many different variations as I could think of by

  • Adding
  • Subtracting
  • Embellishing
  • Elaborating
  • Simplifying

Here are my results by focusing simply on the banner design but dreaming up some potential letter styles, all rough sketches to serve as inspiration
As I draw the banner I first look at its basic outline, the parts that define it and the add some other flourishes, elaborate or extend a corner, subtract a flourish , embellish a design etc and play with those ideas until I arrive at a pleasing design

I have always loved handmade typography there is a certain " unfinished" charm about it that lets one peek at a designer letterer at hand rather than a machine . However different typefaces usually are reproduced by a variety of means and to design type needs to take into account the intended means of application. Whilst hand drawn typography can be the starting point , some media like carving stamps with letter designs for art journaling might not lend themselves as well to some very ornamental flourishes where it would be difficult to carve out all the details whilst very fine and accurate detail can be achieved with etching and woodcut printmaking styles

I am intriqued by the notion of universal consciousness and choose to peek closely at the small particles that make up existence.

Human and living form cell biology, the interplay of microcosm and macrocosm, quantumphysics and the spiritual connection to the Self all nurture me with an endless stream of inspiration.

The female form and its nature of being, the beauty of motherhood, viewing the world in fragments rather than wholes and the palpable energy exchange and communication between them are central themes in my artwork.

I enjoy making the invisible visible and creating openended visual artworks that invite the viewer to explore deeper within their own layers of perception.

Contemporary Mixed media art techniques provide a rich playground for my artistic impulses and allow room for an individual approach to the multilayered facets of my artwork.
