Window Typography

I've always loved hand lettering. This week I decided to look into typography that can be found on windows. Mostly these illustrated (or set type) letters can be found in shop windows. Some of these letters are vinyl cut while others are directly written on the windows with markers. There are shops online where you can custom order you vinyl letters, but others may like the more hand done approach. There are special pens and markers which write on glass such as chalk markers which give a bold and appealing look. There is a video here about a workshop held called "tempting typography" which shows the process of hand lettering on windows and how beautiful the end result can be.

shop window in amsterdam - if we decide to go the lettering/ornament only route w/ no image, we could do something like this. If it still is too simple, it can be embellished even more w/ layered type, etc.
