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.
I’ve really been getting into hand lettering and typography lately. Enjoyed making this one for a 404 error page. Started with a pencil sketch on tracing paper and refined by adding layers of paper and filling it in with a fine tip pen. Scanned, vectorised and added colour and texture in photoshop. Let’s hope my client likes it 🙂 If you’re interested in typography, I recommend the following classes to get you started: Free YouTube intro tutorial by Christian Robinson Communicate Effectively Through the Power of Type on Skillshare
