Coaching: an experimental lettering project
Posted 11 months ago and submitted by Ed Tucker | Share link:

I’ve recently started an ongoing personal project of experimental lettering centred around the theme of ‘coaching’.  In both sport and work (and life in general), I’m always looking at ways to continually improve and operate better, and with this in mind I thought it would be fun to draw parallels between these two fields and make a series of lettering pieces of helpful tips and pointers that could be applied to both sport and my work. I have also felt inspired and reinvigorated by the Association of Illustrators’ Business Empowerment Campaign so it seemed appropriate and timely to instigate a project of personal work that is in keeping with this spirit of development – a key aim of the project is improvement in itself, as I use it to try new things, explore different lettering styles and expand and hone my skills.

This is just the first wave and there are many more of these in the works – I’m currently producing these pieces in sets of three and will release some of them as limited edition prints.
