How to design your own amazing signature

This is my most popular video with over 3 million views! I made it because a couple of people had mentioned having difficulty with their signature.

As teenagers, my generation would cover school exercise books, and the back pages, with practice signatures – slowly forming our adult personas.

Maybe I was a bit self-obsessed, but I remember writing out my signature hundreds of times, slowly perfecting it, making it just a part of muscle memory. Girls, I knew, when they started going out with boys, might even practice a possible married name! (I think some boys even tried out what their new girlfriend’s name might look like conjoined with their surname.

The main message of this video is to just keep on practicing – a thousand times a day if necessary. Some complain that the advice is far too simple. some complain that it is impossible and demand I design their signature – even though I say, “Only you can design YOUR signature.”

Some thank me and say how brilliantly the advice worked. Some are so lazy, they can’t be bothered to watch the whole video, let alone practice a thousand times!

Interestingly, the major demographic for this video is the Indian Sub-Continent. I think that the signature has not been a major part of the culture before, but the internet and the introduction of western security systems, has seen the need to devise and practice signatures.

either way over 3 million views is oretty astonishing for such a niche subject!

One million views for one video!

I have just had my first million view video! I think most of the views have come from India and places where a signature has not been much of a thing, but now, as the internet has come along with western ideas, people are having to learn what a signature is and how to do one.

I’m asked at least once a day to design someone’s signature for them – how ever much I stress it in the video, no one can design your signature – it has to come from you!

Here is the video for you to enjoy!
