How it started
Type and Verse started because I was teaching English in China. I liked my job but I would have rather be doing design. Having clients in China when you don't speak Chinese is pretty diffcult. I had no clients, didn't want to do unsolicited rebrands but I felt an itch to create. I'd discovered that loved I loved lettering because I was too poor to buy fonts in college and decided that I would start practicing every week.
I wanted to letter something meaningful so I spent some time searching online for a variety of quotes but found it was way too easy to be picky and not letter because I wasn't inspired by a quote. I decided that I would start a project where I would force letter once piece for each week of the Chinese school semester (20 weeks a semester) and that I would go through the book of Psalms. I had consistent content, a time frame, and I set to it. I've slowed down because life has changed since then, I have a much more full time job, freelancing, and I'd rather spend a few weeks making something I really love than push something out every week though that was very valueable for me then.
