I'm slightly obsessed with hand lettering. I simply love when I stumble upon any branding, print, signage, mural, etc. showcasing a beautiful lettering work. The talent involved in creating beautiful things using only your free hand, creativity and skills never ceases to impress me. From packages on a supermarket shelf to restaurant chalkboard menus or street signs, I'm always delighted to see a good old hand-drawn piece. And this is why I'm always looking for artworks with that particular style.

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?
Here on Abduzeedo, we love to make you guys explore and discover different mediums that are from user interface design to typography. Let's also admit that about 3-4 years ago, there wasn't that much interest in UI, UX and its complexity. That being said, it's always nice to see artists creating beautiful from both still digital but also analog. There's a thing about working with your hands into making some art. I feel with the time being, that will always be the best way to go.
