Delightfully Spunky Text-graphy

caligraphyLeave it to a designer to inject a bit of old-world  style into our everything-digital world. After rediscovering her father’s old calligraphy pen, Cristina Vanko decided to set aside one week in which she would only send and receive text messages by writing out her communications in calligraphy, taking a picture of them, and then texting the images of her writings.

Vanko says this experiment in “Modern Day Snail Mail” taught her several things about the way we communicate: here are a few of our favorites:

“Impeccable grammar and flawless spelling is necessary for a handwritten note.”

“My messages sent were more thoughtful in the ‘I used complete thoughts’ type of way.”

“We are a culture that heavily relies on emojis.”
