Here is my very first blog post...
My name is Murray Alford, i'm a traditional brush signwriter for nearly 30 years and have just finished my Cert IV in graphic design.
I specialise in type design and calligraphy, i'm inspired by traditional style type design with a emphasis on hand drawn type and text.
I love the classic hand drawn script with scrolls and flourishes, also i do a lot of chalk work and love working with chalk..
I have recently discovered the beautiful artwork and type design used on 'Book Plates'...these are fantastic little artworks in their own right..
Anyway, if you require any type work for any reason, please feel free to contact me and we can discuss your need...maybe you need some original type for a tattoo??
Hopefully i can write some regular posts...i will share my latest inspirations, artworks, exhibitions and general thoughts on all thi
