I recently stumbled upon the charming work of Danielle Davis. Her lettering work pulls from both traditional typography and entirely modern calligraphic styles and she always puts a unique spin on each project. I especially love the small personal illustration touches on each of her projects. Keep up to date with Danielle’s work on her blog and be on the look out for her note card line, Local No. 633, hopefully coming out soon!
Ted Parker is an international man of mystery, whose work exhibits extreme joy in the most strange and comical of situations. This illustration, titled Jungle Coffee, was created to promote The Village Coffee and Music in Utrecht, Netherlands. Regardless of the subject matter, whether it be dogs smoking, lions dancing, or people and animals engaging in pure rowdiness together, one thing is for sure – Ted’s work is sure to put a big smile on your face.
The Florida-based illustrator and designer, Justin Mezzell, has a nice collection of work up on his site. I really dig his flat, straight-forward layouts working together with bright colors and warm textures. That topo-style map ampersand up there is pretty rad.
Jude Landry, the Mississippi-based designer and educator, has a nice collection of work. Rather than a specific style often repeated, Jude’s work feels more conceptually driven. The thoughtfulness and detail is evident in each project. At the core, though, it’s very approachable and readable.
Last year we featured a book about the Canadian, designer, painter and educator Burton Kramer on grain edit. I’m excited to announce that the book’s editor, Greg Durrell, is set to release a full length film on Kramer’s work this spring.
San Francisco based illustrator Hannah K. Lee offers some sage advice through beautiful hand-drawn type, taken from her zine Issues #1: Lessons of Adulthood. Not only does her portfolio boast wonderful lettering, but it also features an impressive collection of portraits done in a loose gestural style with bold line work and intricate mark making that’s hard to ignore.

Here is a gem of a video documenting the trials behind the design of the great PBS logo by Herb Lubalin. The vintage motion graphics are perfectly imperfect and glowing, and its great to see all of the early iterations of the logo, which are documented within this post.
Swissted is the project of one, Mike Joyce (the NYC-based designer, not The Smiths’ drummer). This project is fantastic — redoing flyers for classic hardcore punk and indie shows in the swiss modernist style. Lots of angular layouts, grids, transparency and scale. And he’s done so many! Take a gander, it’s fun to look through.
Column Five is a SoCal-based design studio with a knack for creating eye-catching and persuasive infographics. Their client list boasts well-established magazines and firms that respect and appreciate good design. If you’re fans of their work, you will be excited to know that they’re currently hiring for the following positions:
Graphic Designer – Must be proficient in Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop. Must have strong typographic skills and use of space.
The work of McBess has been a source of illustrated inspiration for many new artists over the course of his half-decade-long career. A signature part of style that sets him apart with his natural ability to bring out shadows and highlights predominantly using thin tipped felt pens, a very big feat when working monochromatically. I love the use of lettering to give his illustrations more context, and the flowing, style gives another layer to already unique and intricate pieces.
