Modern Day Snail Mail




After finding an old calligraphy pen, designer and illustrator Cristina Vanko decided to send hand written text messages to people for that week, with some amazingly endearing results that she calls “Modern Day Snail Mail.”

I wanted to create my own modern day version of “snail-mail.” My rules for this type experiment were simple: create handwritten text messages for 7 days, i.e. no using the keyboard on my phone to send a message. I wrote out my message on paper and then I snapped a photo to send as a text message.
