Just a quick post. I am starting a daily inspiration section on the blog here. Every day I will be updating it with hand lettering and calligraphy that inspires me. If you have work that you would like to have added please drop me a line.
Time for another inspiration post. Today I will be posting work from another amazing artist. Today’s artist is Ged Palmer. He describes himself as:
Ged Palmer is a British designer who specialises in custom lettering. A member of the International Society of Typographic Designers, his fascination with letterforms began in his early years while painting graffiti. Today he creates custom lettering and design for discerning clients, armed with an extremely sharp pencil and whatever else he can get his hands on.
On his twitter feed Ged calls himself a “bona fide lettering junky” and it shows in his work. He does everything from logotypes, to calligraphy, to hand lettering, to sign painting and more. All of his work is exceptional. But enough of me writing and on to the pretty pictures…that’s why we’re all here anyway…make sure you check the bottom of the post for links to Ged’s work.
This is the first of what will be many Inspiration posts for calligraphy and hand lettering. I wanted to start out with someone that I have admired for a very long time and who is quite frankly one of the best hand letterers I have ever seen.
Adam Romuald Klodecki known online and around the world as Theosone lives and works in Warsaw, Poland. He describes himself as:
Industrial designer, illustrator and lettering artist mixing tradition with modernity. The award-winning author in fields of industrial Design, Visual Communication, Poster Art and calligraphy. Polish ambasador of Calligraffiti style. Member of ATAK crew (Anna Taut, Adam Klodecki).
I won’t say much more about him except to say that he is a hand lettering/calligraphy Jedi Master. If you are looking for something to aspire to as an artist I would definitely check out his work. He has a style and flair that really sets him apart. He is truly a master of his craft. He also has an extensive youtube library with tons of videos of him working that really show how a true professional puts pen to paper. But enough of that, following are some samples of his work along with links to more. I think really his work speaks for itself:
