Interesting Hand-Lettering Compositions

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.

Lettering Styles

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.
