Brush Lettering: A Handy Handbook
I chose to study Computer Graphic Design at the University of Waikato because I have always been a creative person, and I knew when I discovered design that is was the perfect field for me. I am passionate about the creative industries and have tried in my years at University to expand my skills in as many fields as I can.
My project is a quick and easy to follow handbook to calligraphic brush lettering. This versatile guidebook is intended to help people create their own calligraphic works, in a variety of different situations, such as café menu boards, wedding invites,and handwritten cards.
In a society where many people only use cursive for their signatures, I want to make the idea of beautiful writing less intimidating to beginners, without long blocks of text, and complex instructions as many calligraphy books incorporate.
