Flush Lettering I like the look of these ‘Type Deck’ playing cards by Chris Cavill, a British designer now living in Canada. The project is currently on Kickstarter and attracting good number of backers. If successful  every card will be individually designed. Taking a look around online, these certainly aren’t the first playing cards to receive the full force of a graphic designer’s makeover. An alternative design that caught my eye was this deck, below, by Jim Sutherlan...

Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016!As the old year fades into memory and we begin a new chapter it’s always useful to take a brief moment of reflection and to consider the future. Last year calligraphy, lettering and type design all seemed to grow in popularity and push creative frontiers; Huge murals featuring calligraphy took the craft to new heights (Cryptik), and in type design we had dynamic fonts that respond to line length (Cowhand) to a digital typeface based on deconstructed wood type (Bixa).The...

Laid-back Lettering Since being introduced to Mary Kate McDevitt’s work I’ve noticed the coffee and cat lover’s lettering appear more and more. Her portfolio embraces a relaxed, natural style that avoids formality or stiffness but maintains it’s vibrancy. On collecting some examples of her work, I realised her style is exemplified by a vintage look depicted in orange and light teal. She recently moved back to the East Coast after nearly four years in Portland, Oregon. New York was at the t...

Nice illustration from Your Pal Dave: “Started out as an exercise in acanthus leaves, but it got a little crazy and wound up being all flourish, no letter.”

Type Fighters I love this decorative 3 by Alex Perez. It was created for the brilliant Type Fight project.  If you aren’t familiar with the concept, the Type Fight creators —Drew Roper, Ryan Paule & Bryan Butler — invite two designers to draw the same character and pitch them against each another in a battle for votes. There can be only one winner.  Alex’s 3 won again Neil Rook’s version. Above are some other excellent type scraps from their archive. It’s well worth a...

TypophonicChicago based Shawn Hazen began collecting vinyl records, just for the artwork, about 15 years ago and in 2012 started to document their typographic covers. Created as an inspiration for designers, Typophonic, explores type’s connotations and emotive power to express different music genres. The covers are helpfully categorised them, by ‘decade’, and themes such as; ‘Big Type’, ‘Script/Fancy’, ‘Psychedelic’ and ‘Type Only’.“Typophonic is a collection of typographically driven 12-inch re...
