Hand Lettering by Joao Neves
Nothing is more refreshing than a dose of lettering design that is quite awesome, inspiring and playful to look at. Well, this is exactly what Chicago-based freelance lettering artist/designer Kyle Letendre has done and it's stunning! First comment is that I love his colour palette on this project was he recalled them to be various pieces of lettering from the past year or so. It kind of reminded me of the colours from the biru brand Sapporo, don't you think?
Hand lettered logos have become quite trendy in the past few years. I believe it's because the idea of handcrafted has become very important in terms of giving character to objects and therefore designs. Tobias Hall shared a super detailed case study showing how he created the logoset for Winterwell. It's definitely worth it and quite inspiring seeing his process. Tobias Hall is an illustrator, letterer and designer working out of London, UK. For more information visit: http://www.tobias-hall.co.uk/
