The media are not toys… they can be entrusted only to new artists, because they are art forms.

Sign writing

Signwriting is a style of calligraphy I have known of for a while but just did not know the name of. It consists of stylish, yet legible aesthetics, and I wanted to learn it for a quick way to produce some readable to anyone, yet visually appealing writing. After reading a few lettering books I discovered the name for this style I have been seeing for years, and with seeing my coursemate: Vanduzzi's big, colourful posters scattered around the studio, it encouraged me to work in this manner.
After a while, I felt the need to represent what I learnt in a final form, hence the posters below, which use signwriting in both a Sharpie, and graffiti marker for the copy, textures of experiments to use as visuals, and InDesign to unite everything together.
