Product Design – Justin Low
Handwriting has a history of about 6000 years, and it has allowed us to record knowledge and maintain a legacy of information. The proliferation of computing technology in the second half of the twentieth century ignited a Digital Revolution, which shifted analog and mechanical methods of recording and communication to digital ones. Typing may be easier to learn, but the personal nature of handwriting is dying.
This final year project examines the idea of individual expression through handwriting and writing instruments, and its importance in the contemporary world.
