Escaped Snake Sparks Terror

May 12, 2010

Here’s the type I produced in response to Katy’s Symbols and Icons workshop. Based upon an existing font, Edwardian Script, I hand drew the swashes, and refined the image in Illustrator, before tracing it again and adding shading. What does this have to do with Symbols and Icons? Well, we looked at heraldic imagery in the class, and I’ve produced a Hackney Gazette heraldic symbol, which I’m carving into a block of lino for printing later this week. The coat of arms will sit above the ribbon type on the poster. Previously I’ve looked into type of this kind by Craig Ward, Sean Freeman, and Alison Carmichael.
