Carolyn Sewell

Carolyn Sewell is an American designer with a love for letters. I bumped into het The Postcards to my parents-project and I thought it very charming:
Carolyn’s parents are the awesomest. Or at least she thinks so…and decided to show them. Starting with their wedding anniversary on July 23, 2009, Sewell hand-drew a postcard for them, and put it in the mail. And then repeated this for the next 365 days.  The content of the cards is quite random, ranging from messages of love and adoration, snarky quotes from friends, family and television, and the occasional drawing of a gnome.

Like Minded Studio
Sydney, Australia based Like Minded Studio, is an internationally celebrated lettering and branding studio. I love the lining and the “packed” imagery.

I did some lettering myself two years ago. I’ve been wanting to do some more letter work for some time and seeing these artists at work, really makes me want to get into it again. You can check out my old work on my website in the mean time, or here on my blog.
