The Richardson Family

About the project

‘The Richardson Family’ is an artwork commissioned by Nathan Tremlett for our common friends Megan Richardson and Alan Richardson. Nathan approached me with the idea of creating a customised wedding gift under the idea of synergy.

I researched synonyms of synergy and found some words that I liked and I thought they gave a positive message: Unity, symbiosis and harmony. I also included concepts of family such as trust, love and respect. And lastly, I included their own names: Megan, Alan, Evelyn and Mae.

Following the definition of synergy –the creation of a whole is greater than the sum of its parts– I thought of creating a contemporary typographic doily, referencing those old school knitted ones that can be found at home.

I showed a loose sketch to the client and we decided to change the word “synergy” by “family” and move ahead.

Vector lettering printed at 30 x 40 cm on 100% cotton rag paper.

‘The Richardson Family’ has been selected to be part of the ‘Goodtype The Book Volume One’. Thanks guys! @goodtype
