Hand-lettered text messages

Designer Cristina Vanko has been using her father's old calligraphy pen to hand-letter her text messages. Here's what's she's learned from the experiment.

1) A phone isn't only a texting device.

2) People like to plan phone calls these days, rather than receive them randomly.

3) My personality shined through so well that one friend texted back "it's like you're here with us!"...but then she followed up a few messages later that "it's almost like you’re deaf and passing notes around in the room."

4) Having a pen and paper is handy at all times.
