Here’s a typeface I’ve had in my mind for a while now. It’s based on the traditional round foundational hand lettering I learnt while at art school.
Create that perfect card with hand lettering and all the confidence that your letters will be perfect every time.
I want to develop on this typeface further by pushing an even more calligraphic style in the lettering. I love the sharpness but roundness in the foundational hand and wished I had studied it in more detail while I had the chance under the calligrapher John Smith (yes, his real name), author of The Art of Calligraphy.
