Hand-drawn Type Product Labels

Just a quick sticker design I’ve created for my sister’s jarred foods she has started making. This is an example of what her Balsamic Glaze will look like once the sticker labels arrive from being professionally printed.

Handlettering

Handdrawn type is harder than it looks. Especially for someone who refuses to use rulers or straight edges.

The lovely thing about hand-lettering and typography is that it is done by hand. This leaves room for slight imperfections and crooked lines, which I can’t help but appreciate.

I have been toying with some drawing apps on my Android phone. Experimenting with cursive fonts that I have been overlaying onto photographs I have taken. The example at the top was actually done on paper, then photographed for a similar process.
