Design: Typographic Illustration

by Max on September 15, 1999

Ever tried drawing large scale straight letters without using a computer or stencils?

Well, here’s some examples of my old-school training in traditional typography and illustration during my years in al-Kafaat College. The samples below include a basic Latin lettering, a candy store poster, a traditional Arabic “Ramadan Greetings” postcard design and a personal logo.

All these illustrations were created using nothing but paper, rulers, some arcane measurements and a steady hand.

Looking back, that entire process strengthened my appreciation and respect to typography and its role in everyday design, but I’m also glad that computer-aided design reduces the amount of time required to create and design!

Tools used: Ink, Colored Pencils and Gouache.
