Handsome Script: Behind the scenes
Behind every font that I make are hundreds of concept sketches, revisions and many hours spent digitally crafting my designs into a font that is beautiful, unique and useful. Handsome Script is the product my daily practice of drawing for 30 minutes each morning. I found myself going back to an elegant script repeatedly. One day I started to sketch an alphabet and from that point on I was hooked.
The images below are meant to illustrate the process I go through in developing a font. I wanted to show the sketches because I think their imperfects are really beautiful. They feel natural to me. Going through this project is important for me creatively. I feel like I think clearer with a pencil over a computer. This hand craft is what makes the final font design so special and unique.
