I LOVE hand painted signs, and I feel that with so many fonts, graphic tools and apps out there people have forgotten this gorgeous form of art. The romanticism of a hand-written note, the nostalgic air around chalk signs inside stores, invitations with your name in script (as in “someone took the time” script)… I miss it all! So, considering I have no clue about calligraphy (would love to learn!), I decided to go at it with a bit of DIY and instinct. At the end, I think it looks a bit naive, but because the quote I used is naive too, I actually think it works! Though this is obviously a Beatles’ quote, I was actually inspired by the way Dakota Fanning says it in I am Sam. Best use of “All You Need is Love” ever!
Anyway, I hope you like it and feel inspired to do it on your own. I also created 2 desktop background freebies that you can download at the bottom of this post.
