Traditional Methods Used in a Modern Context

For this project I created large scale, hand painted type pieces in charismatic locations. The chosen word, typeface and location all correspond with each other.
The main focus was to learn about traditional crafts and trades and develop my hand rendered and custom typographic skills, where each word would be made into a piece in itself.
Nearly every word was created using a new process that I had not tried before.
Knowing that is was not going to be an easy task, I chose the quote, ‘Craftsmanship is not a destination it is a life long discipline.’  After a lot of experimentation, mistakes and success,this was by far the most rewarding and beneficial project I have undergone. The project that ran throughout the 3rd year and I will continue to push it.
