I don’t work with traditional mediums very often these days – other than for rough mock ups which I almost always import into Illustrator and refine digitally.

That’s not to say I don’t love working with traditional mediums. I’d like to start incorporating them more into my digital work so have been experimenting with ways in which I can do so, combining my love for lettering in the process with a series of Mixed Media Letter Experiments.

I’ve worked my way from A through to F so far and plan to keep going until I either run out of combinations and techniques I fancy trying, or reach the end of the alphabet.

I’ll be uploading more of these experiments to Instagram and Facebook as I go, so head on over if you’d like to follow the series.
