My 95-year old Dad died recently and I had the task of designing the order of service for his funeral. Looking for a model to follow, I stumbled across several design-it-yourself websites. I enjoyed the sense of fun in the wide choice of colour options, and the choice of fonts, from the Cooperative Funeral Service.
I suspect Dad might well have gone for the Comic Sans or Arial, for its legibility.
Instead, I commissioned some calligraphy from Dublin calligrapher Gareth Colgan, an ex-Reading student. You can see more of his work on his website: http://www.garethcolgan.com
