Calligrapher Sends Handwritten Text Messages Without Using His Phone Keyboard

Student Alejandro Mallea sent handwritten text messages to his friends for an entire week, without using his phone's keyboard.

Realizing how technology is affecting his life and relationship after picking up calligraphy, Mallea decided to incorporate calligraphy into text messaging—he would have to write out the messages on paper, photograph them, and send them as a picture message.

He received numerous positive feedbacks on his project, some even responded with their handwriting.

Through this experience, Mallea has learnt that these calligraphic messages made people feel special, allows him to express himself more, and are more thoughtful.
