Some type designers make beautiful drawings. Some of these make their beautiful drawings everywhere they go. Restaurants who have paper tablecloths or paper napkins are likely to inspire them, especially if they brought their pens with them. A beautiful series of letter drawings from the 2006 ATypI Conference’s Gala Dinner is on display at http://fontme.net.
The image above was taken after one of the dinners at Linotype’s TypoTechnica conference in London, 2005.
