The Art of Hand-Lettering with Stefan Kunz – Design You Trust

The Art of Hand-Lettering with Stefan Kunz

Hand lettering has become an increasingly popular art form and these creative lettering styles are almost everywhere – whether it’s the logo of your favorite coffee shop, burger restaurants’ chalkboards, the stationery or adverts and wall art, to name just a few.

Lettering is still often confused with calligraphy, which is definitely where hand-lettering originated from; the art of lettering, however, is essentially drawing all kinds of letters, beautifully rearrange typography broken down into its shapes, embellishments and all kinds of different textures, depending on which materials are being used. It has become an independent art form and every piece of lettering is an expression of emotions, often with a deeper meaning — delivering happiness and joy with a touch of nostalgia.
