I (like many other typophiles) first heard of Dana Tanamachi a couple of months ago and was really impressed by her amazing chalk lettering projects. The other day, I saw a couple of time-lapse videos of the projects being created, and was completely blown away by how quickly and well it all comes together. Since she doesn’t use stencils or a projector to aid her drawings, it maintains an almost-perfect notion that this is a one of a kind, fleeting moment in the life of a word, which will probably be soon erased (how poetic!). She is also a part of Louise Fili Ltd., the amazingly prolific lettering studio, where she helps to create some of the world’s most lovely type work.

thanks a lot for sharing this excellent post! I always love to read your blog post :)

The tactility of her work pushes the visual impact…work like this and classic sign painting, should be used more, so much fun to look at.

Heck yah! Way to represent Texas, Dana… Rock!

Amazing! I could keep looking at this all day…

What beautiful typography! This is my first time hearing of her. Dana’s own website is so clean so her portfolio pieces really are the center of attraction. Looks like she is a perfect fit at Louise Fili based off their portfolio products. Thanks for sharing her work!

I like it! Great! For myself I called this one: hard poster!

Incredible work, truly striking and brilliantly executed. I love being able to see the process through the time lapse videos. Great work Dana!
