Also known as cursive, longhand, script, joined-up writing, joint writing, or running writing has become a dying, if not already lost, handwriting is something that a few of us remember learning vividly. Initially created because of it’s practical advantages of writing speed and infrequent pen lifting to accommodate the limitations of the quill, it has been relegated to it’s use as a method of decorating. Over 40 states currently do not require public schools to teach cursive reading or writing. How many of you remember these sheets from school?
Fusion of Fashion & Home – Script & Typography. The art of handwriting may not be taught in schools, but the world still embraces it’s use on everything from furniture, to packaging and even skin!
Our designers use script and typography beautifully. Though we live in a world filled with technology, it all begins with the pencil. Note the sketches on paper and the matching final digital printouts. Some of this work is still available from our collection, contact us if you are interested.
