Created by Matthias Dörfelt, Handwritten Invoice is a response to the mundane task of writing invoices, replaced by computer generated visualisation of moneys owed as well as a handwritten typeface.
After I set down and started working on my first invoice design using a template file of apples famous text processing software pages I quickly felt very bored. I asked myself how I could create something that rather fits the rest of my work and that does not look like any other vanilla invoice paper. I thought that something more personal would be great which does not look like a computer written document. Everybody likes handwritten letters. Their individuality gets rarer and rarer in the digitialized world and thus I decided I want handwritten invoices.
The invoices were created using Nodebox, a python tool by Frederik De Bleser and Tom De Smedt. The program redraws Matthias’s logo indivudually for each invoice, uses his handwriting as the typeface and adds one stroke for each Euro/Pound/Dollar the invoice charged.
