I asked my friend (who studies broadcast journalism) to write out some short-hand for me. I thought it was really interesting and so wanted to include it in my journal. Short-hand is a different type of writing skill which abbreviates language, making it quicker to jot down notes.
When I went to The Lake District I picked up this leaflet in a shop, and stuck it in my journal because I thought the colours and fonts used were really appealing.
This piece by Alphonse Mucha will demonstrate well what I previously mentioned about broadening my knowledge of designers. I found the next images when I put this designer into a search engine...maybe I could get used to gaining instant access like this after all!

Mucha was a Czech, Art Nouveau painter (1860 - 1939). Art Nouveau (meaning "New Art" in French) was based on the idea around William Morris' Arts and Crafts movement, which suggested that everything could and should be art.
