In Need of Typography Inspiration?
I decided to start a new series this week, showcasing beautiful typography, type treatments, and hand lettering. I can’t get enough of stuff like this, and I’m willing to bet you can’t either. I find it truly amazing how good some people are at drawing type by hand. It took me a while to get decent with a computer. I can’t imagine creating anything this good by hand. I’ve taken courses, but it just doesn’t seem to be my cup of tea. With that being said, I still admire beautiful type, especially hand-drawn type, because I realize the skill and craftsmanship that goes into it. If you need a little typography inspiration, check out the examples shown below.

I love the vintage C. It reminds me of old school Broadway signage. The lighting, like the bulbs and the neon help perpetuate this idea.
