[HAND DRAWN RESEARCH CONTINUED]
As well as researching through books, I also conducted some research on the internet. From the greeting cards project I came across a website - ffffound.com. I can find myself literally sitting in front of my Mac for hours wading through page after page of design work, constantly gaining inspiration.
I stumbled across a lot of hand rendered type on the website. Ranging form graffiti on a wall, to carefully drawn vintage type on a napkin, to random words scribbled onto paper. All of it I find is very eye catching and effective for whatever use is intended.
