After looking around for a while, this was the typeface I decided to use. I think it’s quite free and expressive but also easy to read so it will work for a sign.
I hand drew the text then scanned it in to digitally edit it so it looked cleaner but not so much it lost that handmade feel. When I was drawing it, I didn’t realise I was going to run out of paper so I had to draw the word ‘food!’ separately and edit that in later.
After cleaning up my type, I went about editing it so it matched the colours of the sign already and was ready to add my pattern.
