    Quote by Edward Johnston hand lettered for a sketchbook
Hand Lettering Sketchbook
Honors Hand Lettering at CCAD
Prompt: choose a quote about type and create an application for it

Quote by Edward Johnston: "This then is the scribe's direct purpose: the making of useful things legibly beautiful"

Application: The Edward Johnston Foundation (located in East Sussex) has the mission of promoting formal hand lettering and the teaching of it. I chose to create a hand lettering sketchbook that could be used by participants of Edward Johnston Foundation Courses.
In 2012 I entered this piece in the Neenah Un Show Design Contest, a design competition celebrating all forms of expression on uncoated paper sponsered by Neenah Paper and HOW Magzine , in the Student Category. It won a category award in Student Work and will be shown in HOW Magazine. Look at the other category winners here.
