After a lot of running around this week to prepare for the @oldschoolnewschool Type Design Program commencing this MONDAY ! I found a few delicious free hours this Sat afternoon to rehearse the formal brush work that kicks off and is a feature of this year's type design program #madeinmelbourne #customtype #handlettering #typedesigner #typedesign #brushlettering #signpainter #signpainting #customtype #customlettering

As the director of a Type Design program, it often feels that the amount of time and energy involved in thinking planning and writing is overwhelming ! Anyway it's a nice opportunity to test my first Typeface - Brooklyn Bold. The more I learn about type design the greater is my hate love relationship with Brooklyn Bold. Just like my relationship with Brooklyn itself. I spent a lot of time alone in NYC & Brooklyn last year studying lettering and Type. It's a hard city if you are female, 40+ and all alone. But the bookstores, typo happenings and learning shifted my perspective on calligraphy, lettering and Type Design completely. Thanks to @calligraphile @typelettering @typographicsnyc and @coopertype ! It's always refreshing to evolve ! #typedesign #typedesigner #typographic #handlettering #customtype #typography #madeinmelbourne

Practice ONE LETTER over and over to learn the actual letter by heart . The movements required to make that letter, the counter shapes within the letter, the curves of the O and R. All must match ! All must be consistent. Practice the same letter to train yourself to make CONSISTENT Letters ! Long way to go yet ! #signpainter #signpainting #brushlettering #madeinmelbourne #customtype #typographydesign #typographic #typedesign #typedesigner #oneshot #ligaturecollective #goodtype #typespire #graphicdesign #goodtypetuesday #brushtype #thedesigntip #designspiration #typographyinspired #handmadefont #calligritype #thedailytype

A brush script promotional lettering piece I'm working on for my June Brush Pen Script class at @oldschoolnewschool #logo #madeinmelbourne #brushlettering #calligraphic #typographic #delicious #typography #yum #tombow

Did you know nearly every alphabet or calligraphic hand (Typeface ) is modular? That's right, comprised of basic componentry of repeated modules. Here's a little vid of me teaching the timeless principles of mid century Brush Pen Script calligraphy at @oldschoolnewschool a few weeks ago. The next class is June 10 if you are keen to learn the timeless principles of correct lettering ! These principles will last you a lifetime. Sometimes I think that in such an uncertain era, this is the reason we all like type. The principle of good letters is over 2000 years old and is something constant and dependable. #customtype #customlettering #graphicdesign #handlettering #typographydesign #melbournemade #madeinmelbourne #skill #craft #writing #brushlettering #brushcalligraphy

Resources for my "Script hand Drawn Wordmark" Intensive at @oldschoolnewschool comprises 3 books that I have written. Packed with diagrams and examples - Book one introduces the timeless principles of Script Lettering that you need - including the history. Book 2 is the grammar of flourishing and how to use this grammar to flourish fluently. Book 3 is all about pure design - how to use the principles in book 1 and 2 to create something exciting ! There is a lot of my work featured within and some terrific examples ! Indispensable to provide ongoing vision for the students :) #typographic #typography #publication #customlettering #customtype #graphicdesign #drawing #script

Brush Blackletter study with Windsor and Newton fitch brush. 2017 Type Program Students will be working with this brush a lot to paint big letters ! Making sets of big letters and words helps students understand the how nuance of stroke and shape affects Typeface character ! Spacing and rythm (texture) in particular !! I'm excited with the applications to date - and particularly excited about the 2017 Program ! #customtype #typelove #customlettering #blackletter #typographic #typographer #typedesign #typography #typedesigner #signpainter #alwayshandpaint
