An Extra Hour : Hand Lettering Design

The British clocks go back one hour this weekend. Inspired by this and a book I’m reading at the moment called ‘Early One Morning‘ by Virginia Baily, this design was created using hand lettering & illustration.

Once I had the general composition in place, I worked up the letters and graphics using layers of tracing paper with a fine point pencil and pen. Then moved to Photoshop for the final tweaks to the layout, colour and texture.
