The Art of Handwriting

The Art of Handwriting

Posted by Lin on 3rd Feb 2017

Not unlike starting a painting…blank sheet of paper and a tool called a pen…intimidating…gotta start...

There begins the relationship between you, the tools – the pen and the paper. By handwriting a letter or note you are creating a unique stamp of yourself – your penmanship style, the choice of writing surface, the choice of writing instrument and your personal expressions. It is very much like choosing a brush, paint and surface to apply your marks to express sadness, empathy, sympathy, joy, independence, insecurity, anger…

The marks made in a letter do not have to be “fancy”, neat or straight. In other words, your handwriting is an extension of yourself in a one-of-a-kind way. We use 21st century tech to jot down ideas and communicate with others in a ubiquitous style, whether it be in Times Roman or Helvetica. Your handwriting is your brand.

Imagine the feel of the pen in hand, the glide or scratch of the nib on the paper. The choices you make in tools will affect your experience. Do you like fountain pens, or dip pens, rollerballs, ballpoints? Do you like to write on smooth surfaces or something with a bit of tooth? The list goes on. The point being – let’s not lose the art of handwriting!
