A little bit more freeform now …and thinking more about the text project.
And some hand cut and printed letters..
More daily freehand letter forms for my October pen sketches.
They have been very useful in just understanding how letter forms are created, about the rules and then how rules are broken and bent.
Just as rules should be …
This second set includes some wonderful 60’s 70’s letterforms.The vibrant work, the visual track of my teens and early twenties and formative in my design thinking, really needs those incredible colours..more of that to come.
It was interesting that while working on them I found these exuberant forms were the only ones that just would not be contained within the page. Some may recognise part of the “U&lc” Upper and Lower case mag logo.
Every gorgeous issue of Herb Lublin’s magazine was stuffed with wonderful design. I used to have a few.
And a few larger sketches from a great typographical “life class”.. Next month I am going to hopefully continue this daily exploration of type… but with some colour!
