Being still in balance

“This is a special balancing trick that requires a small child to stay completely still (so it’s still only theoretical).” – Storypeople

Duh. Of course. There is such a relationship between being in balance and being still.

  • Look and feel of the calligraphic pen
  • Idea of embedding a picture within the block letters i.e. using block letters as ‘windows’ through which to view a landscape/story

Do different:

  • Use a thicker nib for the signoff
  • Work on ‘ribbon’ typography – twists and turns of the letters to remain connected
