In a commitment to drawn art in an age of digital communication, type designer Dave Foster has been hand-lettering all his @FosterType tweets during the month of May…

The Sydney-based type designer is using the hashtag #MayDave alongside examples of his hand-drawn work, rendering ‘@’ names and the contents of tweets in a range of different styles.

Foster’s tweets have ranged from simple replies (“Nah” or “Thanks!”) or details about lettering workshops, to lengthier statements such as yesterday’s, “It’s times like these when I wish I had more to say…”.

You can see his latest work on @FosterType and via the #MayDave hashtag – and he still has a week to go. Foster’s portfolio is at fostertype.com.
