What Is Graphic Design For?: Type- Oh my clumsy heart.

For a long time, I have followed the work of Sophie Davies (aka 'oh my clumsy heart')- whom specialises in hand-rendered emotive imagery and type- often using heartfelt or meaningful quotes, scrawled down with great sentiment.
The type above, in her usual style (perhaps me being slightly biased with a quote from the God-like 'The Smiths') is small, sharp, expressive and yet neat and ordered- a natural and bold style that I, and many other young design fans admire throughout fanzines, prints and small-scale book publications.

In the near future I would really like to practice and develop my hand-rendering typographic technique- find a distinctive style as Sophie has that is truly expressive.
