Design process

HAND DRAWN

The alphabet typefaces that the App runs off are unique (see example of one typeface above). Typefaces are designed first by hand.

VECTOR

Each typeface is adapted in Illustrator to create an outline version of it.

WHERE TO PAINT

Where you paint could transform  an approved run down area and make it more appealing by the use of proper design.

The App will show you, step by step, how to create your word, what it will look like as a mockup and where you can actually paint

it legally.
