Typography [AWB Vince]

My son doesn’t know it, but I’m training the young padawan to be an artiste. For a lot of my personal works I like to use my or someone else’s handwriting. That someone else is usually, Vince. Up until the last invitation I worked on I’ve had the boy write key info like when, where, who, etc. That way I can scan shoot what he writes and place it accordingly. Otherwise, if I needed some kid handwriting, I’d write with my left hand. It makes the pieces more personal.This time, though, I had him write out the whole alphabet in upper and lower case along with numbers and various punctuation marks.

<Above’s a shot of my phrase and word layouts for BJ and Carmine’s Baby Shower invitation using Vince’s handwriting.>

Spectabulous (word patent pending). Now I had complete freedom to typeset what I wanted, and…and…I had what’s going to be the first in Vince’s portfolio of handwritten typefaces – AWB (As Written By) Vince aka Vince Hand.
