Writing like an architect

heh, i know my professor would have some objections with his legibility here - looks like fun eh? tedious horendously-smudgy fun... i like the tape on the triangle trick, very handy!

  1. That plastic tool for making evenly spaced writing lines is pretty sweet. I want one.

    Beyond being uniform and legible-ish, is the idea of writing in this style somehow supposed to advertise the design or designer some way?

  2. the Ames Lettering Guide is very handy - you should borrow mine sometime.

    Yea, part of the idea is that each designer should have sort of a unique and interesting style while still being legible. A lot of designers just use computer fonts now or trace printed text now, but it is still a very handy skill to have.
