Letters are everywhere – from simple communication to elaborate signage. But they don’t just appear out of thin air. Lettering is a craft.
Especially with the rise of the handcrafted work in branding and design (you’ll remember some sat at the top of our Best Logo Trends of 2014), hand letterers are popping up around the globe. Worshiping typography and celebrating kerning, they scout for the perfect pens, lead holders and brushes to create some seriously good looking letters.
With the artistry on the rise, letterers are turning to Instagram to show their stuff, and we dug through hashtags to find 10 of the very best. Check out their work in the gallery above, and follow them on Instagram for some lettering inspiration.
