I love drawing and hand drawn typography. I have filled dozens of notebooks. I even started an Etsy shop to sell hand illustrated notebooks.
So you might assume I have good handwriting.
Often during meetings I am apprehensive of my clients catching a glimpse of my notes and thinking one of these three things:
- She won’t be able to read her handwriting later and will miss something important.
- Nobody with this type of handwriting can be an artist.
- Is she a serial killer?
Here are some notes I took at a recent meeting.
As you can tell, whenever I finish something off my to-do list, I am so overjoyed that I get a little excited when crossing it off.
What’s even worse is when I try to sketch a mockup for a client during a meeting and forget how to draw lines.
Sometimes I misspell words or leave a letter off the end and have to go back and fix it.
But the thing is, I really do love typography and hand lettering. I am capable of drawing calligraphy and fancy text.
Are there any other creatives out there with bad handwriting?
