Lettering heading

Lettering design is a skill I really admire and envy.

Calligraphic flow, typographic knowledge and creative artistry all go hand in hand, creating balanced, beautiful artwork for logos, illustration, apparel and loads of other end uses.

Alphablog: W is for Workspaces

As I write this from an unusual workspace for me (a coffee shop in Plymouth’s city centre) it might seem ironic, but despite the bonuses of human interaction, the buzz of life and of course good coffee, it’s confirming how important my own workspace is to me.

Alphablog: B is for Blogs

Since it’s inception in the late 90s, the trend of blogging has become a worldwide phenomenon, and a hugely valuable tool in many situations, both corporate and personal. To start with, blogs offered individuals the chance to write and publish their thoughts in a diary that could be read and followed across the globe. They have subsequently grown and diversified to become, in effect, magazines, corporate brochures, inspiration walls and even daily news feeds.

For graphic designers specifically, both owning and following blogs can be really beneficial. Owning and writing for blogs is generally recommended as a tool to improve your web presence, and encourages research, writing and evaluative skills which can also be beneficial to your client (and other creative) work.
