Isn't it weird how opposites attract? But it is so true. Not only is it true in personal relationships, but in hand-lettering as well. Using opposite styles or ingredients makes for a better over-all hand-lettering composition.
Opposites, or contrasting design elements, oddly enough, supports each element and makes a composition balanced and interesting. For example, when lettering a phrase writing out the important words in BOLD or Large words and the supporting words in a narrow script brings balance the whole lettering scheme.
Coming up with fresh and unique lettering styles for a word or phrase is challenging. When I get stuck in a creative rut, repeating the same style of lettering over and over again, I like to take some time to brainstorm new ideas.
Grab some paper and your trusty pen and have fun! Without any judgement or hesitation, push yourself to try different styles.
Thank Goodness for the internet! Without it I would have never struck gold and discovered the wealth of online resources! I'm a city girl stuck in a very puny town in the humongous state of Alaska! My small town is nice, but lacks a lot of the creative lifestyle conveniences. However, I'm so grateful it does have one modern convenience - the internet!
