I was recently asked to create a poster to help promote the newly released font by Decade Typefoundry called Basingstoke that was based on the classic style of vintage ephemeras and specifically by the Sanborn Insurance Maps. I created a poster based on similar influences as the typeface to showcase it. Click here for more details of this project on my Behance page
First of all please excuse the profanity. This is my first attempt on Calligraphy, based on a quote that I heard somewhere. A priest asked this person “do you know what the shortest prayer in the world is?” and he said it is those two words.
It is a statement we make when contemplation just go out the window, and we just do it. I’ve been admiring the works of artists like Luca Barcellona, and recently Jackson Alves and Andrei Robu with their calligraphic exploration so I told myself these two words, and give it a go. Bought myself a couple of calligraphic pens, and I’ve just been practicing ever since
