Swirl typography. I quite like how there are added swirls to the sans serif typeface it makes it look more organic and aesthetically pleasing.
What, Why and how does this inspire me?
The style of the letterforms and the way the letterforms have been designed to follow from one to the next letter looks visually appealing. I also like the curviness of the letterforms as they look interesting and stand out.
I’ve also been following Seb Lester-An artist who renders type using traditional methods
For this he used ink to create the alphabet. I quite like how we experiments using traditional methods as it looks more effective and stands out more.

He used a cola pen made from a fizzy drinks can and ink to create the alphabet. The letters look very expressive and effective. I like the way the letters as drawn as it looks interesting and visually appealing,
