About 26 Ways:
A common creative exercise for designers, illustrators, and letterers alike, is to play with different styles of the Latin alphabet. I have done the same plenty times as a warm-up before starting the day. But with life and work on the constant, it had been a long time since I stopped to sit and draw again. This was an opportunity to revisit the practice more deeply to develop my skills, explore type treatments & color palettes that I usually don't get to execute with the rigidity of existing client branding, as well as pay homage to the beautiful signage and typography found all over the world.
