For my entry I was inspired by the old Russian type of Cyrillic ornate lettering (called Vyaz) which was widely used in the 14-19 century. The actual look of these letterforms was more important than readability. So every book handwritten in Vyaz had a sense of craft to them and was considered as a true masterpiece. I decided to use variant baselines and decorative swirls to create a sense of development and playfulness.
And then my Creative Director decided to put my artwork on our glass wall. Now our studio is truly unique unlike any other place in Manchester. And of course I'm dead excited to see my work in this huge size!
I also found my work printed in the Shillington Post which was a big surprise for me! Definitly keeping this piece for future generations :)
