There was a time, not too long ago where I was focusing my free time on my hand-lettering skills. As easy as it seems, it was a hard challenge. I should get my hands back at this medium but right now I am focusing my time on photography. But if you are into lettering or a beginner, and you are looking for artists to follow on Instagram. It's a great to one, get inspired.

I'm a Brazilian product designer based in Oakland, California currently working for Google as a Staff Designer. I am also the founder of Abduzeedo, an award-winning digital publication about design and a personal project that has become the source of inspiration for millions of designers and enthusiasts.
It's not the first time we showcase the work Ricardo Gonzalez aka "It's a Living" here on Abduzeedo. His typographic work is easily unique of its kind and something quite inspiring that we truly enjoyed to feature. Check out some of his latest work and we would recommend you to to check out his site and follow him on his Instagram --> Itsaliving. Enjoy!
Following our post yesterday about ligatures, today we're excited to share yet another article about typography. This time we feature an incredible personal project on calligraphy by Joan Quirós, a graphic designer born in Valencia, Spain and currently working in London. A selection of my personal work done just for practicing and just for having fun. Most of them uploaded on my Instagram account.
Let's finish off the week with a typography design and calligraphy project that totally defines a genre and style. Overall, It kind of reminds me of the work from the latest Fantastic Beasts movie or even Pirates of the Caribbean. Designed by Hanoi-based Biksence Nguyen, we are taken on this voyage of mixture of lettering, gradients and textures. It's quite beautiful, I personally loved this take on the "Octopus" piece, you'll understand what I mean when you see it.
