You can’t beat a good old pencil. Hand-drawn typefaces are in, loose illustrations are the style of the moment and whoa, it often pays to take a couple of minutes to plan ahead before designing on screen.

Here’s Indigo’s resident ‘Fat Pen’ (not a reference to any member of staff past or present) enjoying a well-earned break. The 5.7mm graphite payload has been taking a bit of a pasting in the past few months and a week off in the Spanish hills seemed fair reward. Sitting atop a spiky cactus isn’t everyone’s idea of fun but hey, it takes all sorts.
