Penmanship is a skill where most of us fall on the spectrum of normal to average as far as dexterity and expertise is concerned. On one end, there are those of us who have the inherent gift of being able to write in beautiful flourishes and calligraphic-like letters. You envy their perfectly shaped letters that form words and sentences as they dance across a page like art.
On the other hand, we have our friends who didn’t get so lucky in the handwriting department. We often joke and say they should be doctors, because who can ever read their script? These people may have been the kids who scribbled on the walls or had the most ‘interesting’ drawings as a child.
But who hasn’t scratched some random script or cryptic characters onto a notebook page during a lecture or anywhere else just out of boredom? Sometimes these stay just as they are – scribbles, but sometimes these shapes end up twisting and turning on the page to create a life of their own.
At first glance, the designs in the new collection Script might only look like fanciful script or scribbles across a page, but looking closer, you find the patterns to be filled with geometric shapes, romantic flowy lines, and abstract facades. Like autographs, love letters, and hand sketched portraits, Script portrays the meaningful and beautiful keepsakes and mementos that one gathers throughout a lifetime. The art of writing and calligraphy is an ancient one that was once held in high regard and very few were skilled in its ways. With this in mind, Script encompasses a historically abstract yet modern collection that feels right at home in a wide array of design styles.
Initially available in graphic black and white colorways, Script can be customized to be in any scale or color to best suit its surroundings. Script’s patterns will maintain its bold style but softer looks can be achieved with tonal coloring and appropriate base cloth selection. Customize a pattern from the Script collection and write a new story with your design!
