OFB - The Complex Lettering Design & Making Of

Five years ago Bruno Do Nascimento had the chance to do the Branding for the “Old Fade Bastard” barbershop, now he was contacted to design a custom lettering and paint it on a wall for their new store OFB - The Complex, opened in the beginning of this year. We here at abdz. love some lettering and anything typography related. So of course we had to feature Bruno's work, especially because he was kind to share a making of vide as well.

The idea was to make a lettering that was in line with the theme, in a monochromatic style that resembled blades that would fit the Industrial style of decoration given by the owners.
