Handwriting is a lost art…

Trend of the month – Thick Brush Lettering

Handwriting is a lost art. As typography becomes more sophisticated, there’s a push back from clean lines toward flawed, varied hand type. Splotches and imperfections make hand written letters stand out, and give a projects a friendlier vibe. 

Calligraphy had a big moment in 2014. Modern-style calligraphy, featuring very thin and very thick lines and large spacing between letters, has been popping up all over wedding invitations and motivational posters. But for a less feminine, more solid look, 2015 is all about thick brush stroke type.

Digital typefaces that imitate brush strokes are available to download — but nothing quite beats doing it by hand.
