This project was rather different from other projects I had previously undertaken. It involved creating typography using a 'handmade' method. Essentially, it was to move away from technology and create something quite intricate.

I have to admit, I really enjoyed this project. Not only was it nice to take a step away from my Mac but it was also something completely different to anything I have done before.

I originally discovered String Typography when I was in college, again, completing a project on interesting and quirky typography. I was particularly drawn to string typography due to how intricate it was.

I decided that this brief would be the perfect opportunity for me to complete my own version of string typography, using hardwood board, small nails and embroidery thread.

My results are shown below and a timelapse of the making process is available here.
