I’m super excited about this new project that I’m working on, so I just had to share the process so far. I’ve already started sketching some hand-drawn logo ideas as well, which I’ll share soon. I always love the more hands-on projects where I get to spend a couple of days in the studio painting or sketching to create something a little more special!
The above mood board was inspired by country manors and rose gardens, and brand words like “beautiful”, “feminine”, “idyllic”, “sophisticated” and “charming”. The colour scheme echoes colours found in nature… pink roses, green manicured lawns – which I adore! Stay tuned for an update on this project soon.
I love the style of the Frankie Magazine website, with its organic, handwritten title complimenting the typewriter body text that gives the site a retro feel.
So today I’ve created a quick 5 min Photoshop tutorial on how to recreate this look! The cursive title looks like it has been hand drawn, but we can use a font that is very similar instead to mock it up in no time at all. I’ve chosen a font called Business Penmanship, but Learning Curve Pro and Sunshine in my Soul are suitable free alternatives.
That’s all we need to do for the title, although if you want more of an organic, hand drawn feel you could print out your title and trace it with a black pen then scan it back into your computer.
So now we can add some body text by using a monospaced, typewriter-style font like Courier New (I’ve just set this to 12px).
The end result:
Font: Business Penmanship
Combine with: Courier New
Great for: Handmade / Vintage Designs
