Proclamation on the Family: Written by Heber J. Grant

For those of you following the blog, you will have noticed my slow but steady progress on my Heber J. Grant typeface. This evening I was able to complete my first project with it. It has been the most requested item on the blog so far so I’m thrilled to announce… The Proclamation on the Family Poster in Heber J. Grant’s handwriting! Available up to 40 x 60 inches, on [...]

Grant Typeface update followup

For those of you following this blog, you’ve seen my work on the Grant Typeface here and here. Here is a little update: Heber J. Grant didn’t include any numbers or many Capital letters in the writing sample I have. This has meant that I’ve had to recreate the missing pieces of the full typeface one character at a time, thinking “What would Heber have done?” Here’s some of my [...]

 

A loaf of bread

My favorite conference talk quote so far has been Elder Uchtdorf’s. So, here is my General Conference gift to you. Happy pinning!

Pretty Banners

I recently got an email from a lovely YW leader asking if she could send me photos of the banners her girls made. Yes of course!

A Brand New Year 2010

I cannot praise the Church enough for getting their youth programs online. The new youth.lds.org is full of great information that the youth and we leaders can download, print and share, based around this year’s theme of Be Strong. If you haven’t seen it, forget my blog and have a look. If you’re still here, here’s the highlights to look for: On the homepage is a slideshow of large images. [...]

 

Personal Progress Redesign

Still on Christmas break, but had a little time to write. I thought in this post, I’d speak as a designer and give my ‘design review’ of the new YW Personal Progress visuals (not the content). And also to give a shout-out to the designer as I’m sure trying to please a committee of women and general authorities must have required a miracle. Designing by committee is a very tough [...]
