A Diario // Daily Hand lettering

Laura Páez in Bogotá, Colombia is creating A Diario // Daily Hand lettering. She explains, "As a designer I feel that every day I have to push my creativity, drawing letters is one way. Every day, no matter how busy I am, I draw letters with inspiring words, or songs. This project help me to relax before I go to bed."

Why did you decide to do this project? I found the book one day when I was stuck on the same idea, so I start making exercises and because of my love for Typography, Calligraphy and lettering, I decided to draw letters every day, to get practice and be better every day, I know at the end of this year, my lettering will be better than the first day.

How has doing a yearlong/daily project affected your life? It has been a great experience, because I start to share it on Instagram, and I receive a lot of likes and comments that I never imagine, then I shared it with my friends making a blog. I had to stop for a while because God give me the news I was waiting for: my pregnancy, so i was really busy between working, doctor appointments, and sleeping :) I opened a new instagram account just for the project (adiario) because it seems to be the easiest way to share it online. This project will become in something else...
