Update & More script typography experimenting

It’s been a while since my last post! It has certainly be a whirl-wind of busyness in the past couple of weeks and finally I have been able to organise myself and gather all my photographs and finally show what I have been up to! 

One recent personal project I have been working on is my experimenting and practising with calligraphy and script typography. A couple of posts back, I showed my sketchbook of calligraphy experimentation, and since then I have become for comfortable with that style and so I wanted to use this style towards something more personal to me, so I decided to experiment with my favourite piece of literature, Pride and Prejudice.

Pride and Prejudice has always been a personal favourite of mine and has special meaning to me, so I decided to experiment and take a look at different typography approaches. Below are photos of some first ideas and experimenting. I must apologies for the quality of the photos, they were taking on my phone as unfortunately I didn’t have my camera on me at the time!

One thought on “Update & More script typography experimenting

  1. This is beautiful! I love that you brainstormed so freely before choosing the final design – which is wonderfully innovative. I love experimenting with fonts to see how far I can take such well worn symbols before that fine line (forgive the pun) is crossed and information becomes abstraction. I’ve always had trouble making my own handwriting legible, so I decided to design my way out of the problem…

    Just wish I could ‘design my way out’ of the office early today lol
