BBC Handmade in Britain

A hand-crafted logotype for a season dedicated to all things hand made in Britain, co-curated by the BBC and the V&A. The illustration features a gouge, a carving knife, a keyhole saw and a painter’s duster, and pretty florals by illustrator Lynn Hatzius. The typography is a free-hand interpretation of classic roman capitals chiselled into stone.
