Wordy Type: Nifty Lettering Projects

Have you seen the blog of artist Lisa Congdon? She has an awesome project where she posts a new piece of hand lettering every day in 2012. I’m impressed by her dedication, but also fascinated by her creativity. This “A” from day 90 is one of my favorites so far…


Another artist doing a handwritten letter each day is Mary Kate McDevitt from Portland, OR. Check out her work via the Tumblr account YourHandwrittenLetters. You can sign up to receive one of her letters…just fill out a form on her website. All of McDevitt’s work has a slightly vintage, ink-washed look, but the style ranges from modern superhero to vintage font.

Another cool lettering project that I can’t get enough of is 50 and 50, a curated display where fifty different artists were invited to illustrate the motto of their home state. Check out this one from Colorado, by Justin Fuller of Pencil + Paper. The motto is odd, but I love the design.



Cheers, Amy
