Together We Can Do So Much

This lovely Christmas campaign from 1973ltd has an animated Helen Keller quote drawn by me.

Inkymole's company charity of choice for the last ten years has been Mind, so I couldn't have been happier to help out with this project!

I was put forward for the job by a long-time client, Jamie MacDow, who used to work for AFishInSea (who doesn't love a good pun?) who now works with 1973ltd. Alison and Tom there asked me to create a hand-lettered interpretation of Helen Keller's quote 'Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much'.

Due to the fast turnaround (Christmas isn't it!) I decided to create this piece using my Apple Pencil and Procreate, which would allow for fast changes, additions and fidgets. As it was, very few of those were required - I sent five options, and one was chosen with virtually no changes, just a little polishing here and there.

Here's the progress from blank screen to final; you can see where I've used a clock face to get a good circle, since I can't draw freehand circles very well!

To read the full text from the campaign go here:

Thanks to Tom and Alison at 1973ltd for inviting me to work with them on this! And should you wish to contribute to Mind, you can do that here.
