Project: Handwrite Governors Island Arts Center donor names in custom script on designated wall space

 We started the conversation with a “mood board” of potential scripts. I provided sketches with two styles and layouts. After refining the chosen cursive style, we paired and contrasted it with a simple sans serif for the headlines.

 In conversation with Lucien, we went through my Instagram feed to look for styles he might resonate with. His only direction was, “something with visual interest; a unique detail”.   I played around with some alternatives, and decided to write the first names in lowercase script, the last names in uppercase sans serif - with any double letters stacked - and rounded it out with a blind-embossed “10” to mark the 10th season.

 Before installing the cards, I spent some time high up on a ladder to paint the Thank You message onto the wall.   I wrote it out on my iPad first, and then was able to project it onto the wall. I kept the pencil tracing super loose to make sure to maintain the handwritten feel.
