Super-sized Greek Sunshine and Happiness

This super-sized 1200 x 800mm bespoke 'Memories' canvas is another More Than Words favourite. 

One of our signature fonts against a classic white canvas; a timeless piece which captures 'awesome' family memories for a lucky birthday boy.

Due to its size and weight, artwork of this size is hand-stretched around a solid frame with a supporting backboard to ensure it remains perfect and lasts a lifetime.

Flying the flag for creativity...

Today I wanted to feature a recent typographic design created for the owner of the fabulous MakeMe Workshops.  A vintage Union Jack and Canadian flag created using favourite family memories.  Prices for bespoke designs start from £75.
I love Melissa Mechant's business concept.  She started her MakeMe workshops in Cobham (UK) after leaving a busy legal career in the City to raise her two children.  

MakeMe is a modern craft and lifestyle venue supported by a team of talented people who teach everything from photography, to fashion, to floral design and furniture painting...

“We want to provide you with a fun filled few hours where you learn something new and leave proud of your creation. Making something from nothing using your own two hands and a little imagination is a fulfilling way to spend time. Meet new people, learn new skills and do something for yourself (and eat piece of cake or two).”

We're Loving: Sass & Peril

Since embarking on our own screen printing projects recently, I now have immense love and admiration for other screen printers and their artwork, appreciating the sheer hard work that goes into each and every design and print.


Today I want to feature these little beauties I spotted on Etsy by Sass & Peril.  


Aren't these great? With my little owl obsession, I have to say the little 'Owl Love' prints are my favourite.

Love is...

A few shots of just some of the bespoke typographic artwork going out this week and sharing great customer feedback about the 'LOVE' commission below which captures this lovely wedding reading...


“Love Is Friendship Caught Fire” by Laura Hendricks
"Love is friendship caught fire; it is quiet, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection, and makes allowances for human weaknesses. Love is content with the present, hopes for the future, and does not brood over the past. It is the day-in and day-out chronicles of irritations, problems, compromises, small disappointments, big victories, and working toward common goals. If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things you lack. If you do not have it, no matter what else there is, it is not enough."



"My canvas has just been delivered and its fantastic! I really love it and I'm sure my husband will too. It is so lovely to have something completely unique to remind us of our special day.  The service you have given has been impeccable - swift, thorough, friendly. Its been a real delight to deal with you and I will have no hesitation in recommending you to others."

Livingetc : Tell someone how you feel, stylishly.

Today I'm very excited that the More Than Words' 'I Love Just You' screen print has been featured by the team behind Livingetc in their online blog, Life.Style.etc - packed full of chic and inspired design ideas spotted by the team behind the UK's leading magazine for modern interiors!


"When we see something that makes our design minds flutter with joy, we’ll share it with you here...."
And here's what they have to say...


Okay, so we know Valentine’s day is kind of a load of nonsense, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to indulge in a little bit of stylish stuff for our special ones. Make them feel good, and all that. So this gorgeous screenprint from More Than Words is just the thing. We love it when people get passionate about beautiful paper. Brilliant font, too.

Hope Is The Thing With Feathers

Today I want to share a beautiful piece of bespoke typographic artwork designed for Candida Balfour, creator of the fabulous nestify, an online magazine dedicated to 'making your nest the best'. Candida has written for various publications including the Financial Times, the Evening Standard, Daily Candy and mydeco.com, where she used to run the blog. 


More Than Words was featured in a "People We're Loving" piece on the fantastic nestify blog last September, which you can read here.  


Candida contacted me at Christmas to ask if I could design a special piece for a loved one, composed of a poem by Emily Dickinson and overlaid with a French love note in a vibrant coral colour.  Thank you to Candida for letting me share this!  I absolutely love the sentiment it captures.







Emily Dickinson defines hope by comparing it to a bird in this beautiful poem - 



Hope     

Hope is the thing with feathers 
That perches in the soul, 
And sings the tune--without the words, 
And never stops at all,


And sweetest in the gale is heard; 
And sore must be the storm 
That could abash the little bird 
That kept so many warm.


I've heard it in the chillest land, 
And on the strangest sea; 
Yet, never, in extremity, 
It asked a crumb of me.

Bespoke typographic art.  Available at www.morethanwords.uk.com from £70.
