Custom Lettering Inspiration

LetterCult.com, a site dedicated to "highlighting artists and designers doing remarkable work with Custom Letters," includes me on their Letter Makers list. Cool-wee. "It's nice just to be nominated," but seeing the variety of high-quality competition serves as fuel to innovate. (For instance, I could stand to broaden my hand lettering work with more modern, rustic, and purposely rudimentary styles. I also should improve precision to compare with some of those surely mad calligraphers!)

Working on new hand-lettering samples will be a project for me in the coming weeks, and I'll post some pieces that pass muster, as well as a chronology of how I produce lettering from thumbnail to finished digital art.

In the meantime, for great eye candy and inspiration for custom lettering, design, and logo ideas, head over to LetterCult's Letter Makers list, which provides links to all of the talented letterers.
