lettering logotype


Self-branding: Logotype and CV

I’ve been spending the last few days working on a new CV for myself and after a few pages filled with tiny layouts and ideas I finally picked one developed it. My main focus was to create a design that would be informative and easy to follow, all the while being aesthetically pleasing.

A lot of you may recognise the Logotype at the top, yes, that is what I use as my watermark and it is hand-lettered. I tried many different lettering styles for my name and it just didn’t feel right, it felt totally fake, like I was trying to create a different identity for myself. So I picked up my pencil and just wrote my name the way I always do. No interesting ligatures, no extravagant swashes. Just my simple hand-writing in all its beautiful simplicity.
