So today was a bit of a treat to be honest we had the pleasure of meeting Paul Matlock sign writer / caligrapher with over 30 years experience under his belt and believe me it shows.
He showed us some very useful techniques with freehand rendering which has made it so much easier to produce type instead of the modern day way of the digital format.
Its something i plan to take further, im currently looking at some early sign writers work one that im very found of are Jock Kinneir and Margaret Calvert two designer that were the founders of the modern British road signage system that has become a role model of the world https://designmuseum.org/designers/jock-kinneir-and-margaret-calvert.
