Keystrokes

For those not old enough, keystrokes meant an amount of letters or depression of a typewriter key/letter. It also meant the sound of the metal “key” striking the paper and resonating on the roller behind, with an echo within the machine. It is was a sound that filled 100s of movie scenes, real offices and well; anywhere that needed a formal document.

Again, I am trying to illuminate and justify the shapes and nuance. A typewriter wasn’t born out of thin air. It was a metamorphosis like any machine.

It is a fun and challenging set of shapes to illustrate.
