6 Hand Letterers We're Totally Digging Right Now.

I love typography, especially hand lettered typefaces. Unlike classic fonts, I find hand lettered fonts extremely expressive. I feel like I’m seeing a piece of the artist that otherwise gets lost through traditional typography. It's truly an art form all its own! Since I love it so much, I'm always seeking out new lettering artists to fall in love with. Here are a few of our favorites!

1. Lauren Hom

She’s a Brooklyn based designer and letterer and currently my new artist crush. Just take a look at her art and I think you’ll understand why. She’s unapologetically honest and incredibly talented.

One of our very own WNL Featured Artists, Emma’s pieces bring out the kid in me. Her work is so full of whimsy and wonderment, I can’t help but be in a cheery mood after looking at it. Though more of an illustrator, Emma often incorporates hand lettering into her illustrations, which I absolutely love.
