Handwritten Letter Project

"There is always something nice about receiving a letter, especially these days when email, text, status updates, and tweets, dominate our communication, leaving many to lose sight of the things that have been around for a while (like ink and paper). However, it is important that they do not."

I can't remember the last time I received a letter? Graphic Designer Craig Oldham also worried that the letter was becoming a forgotten art form so he instigated the ‘HAND.WRITTEN.LETTER.PROJECT’ "The project extended an invitation to designers and creative thinkers alike to simply write and make known their thoughts posed by this situation: in handwritten form and on their stationery." The results were exhibited in Sheffield at Made North and a publication is available from their store here.

This website showcases some of the correspondence since the projects initiation in 2007, containing the thoughts of some of the biggest and best designers and design studios from the world over.
He also commissioned Rik Das  prestonillustration graduate to hand write on the venue windows to advertise the show -
