How to Write in the Distinctive Style of an Architect

Award-winning architect Eric Reinholdt of 30X40 Design Workshop, explains in great detail how to write in the very clear and distinctive style of an architect.

Reinholdt believes that “handwriting is autobiography” and should be treated as such.
