Most people never think about changing their handwriting, but for designers and graphic artists, a small tweak to one’s penmanship can lead to some interesting results, along with a better understanding of different letterforms. It might seem foreign at first, so start out slow, even one letter at a time. A “g” now becomes a “g” and you’re on your way. Other modifications to experiment with: writing on a more acute or obtuse angle, using all upper case letters, and trying new instruments such as a dull pencil or a flathead pen. Pretty soon, your sketchbook will be filled with new font shapes and sizes, and plenty of inspiration to draw from.
