I was delighted to encounter a hand lettering challenge initiated by olivemedesigns on Instagram and since finding content to post can sometimes be a struggle, I took up this challenge enthusiastically. I love praise and worship music so this suited me perfectly.
The aim of the October challenge was to follow a list of worship songs provided by Jina Jung from olivemedesigns and to select any lyrics of the song that you liked. In most cases I knew the songs, in some cases I’d never heard of them before and it was nice discovering new songs in the process.
Prior to this challenge I had not been too adventurous with my lettering, always defaulting to my normal slanted calligraphic style. I decided that I would create various compositions with different typographic styles that would test and force me to learn and stretch my skill so that I’d feel more confident and comfortable with varying compositions and typefaces of my own creation.
Here are some of my posts !
