If you haven’t seen Alison Carmichael’s work, make sure you have a look through her site.
In 2005 she got herself noticed with some self-promotional prints (one of them is shown here). Ever since her hand-drawn typographic style has been utilised in campaigns for some big brands including Stella Artois, Twinings, and Virgin.
Alison’s lettering is fun and characterful, blurring the boundary between type and image, but most importantly is incredibly well crafted. Her intricate hand-drawn typography is reminiscent of times past when adverts and billboards primarily used type, and it is refreshing to see typography once again taking the forefront in advertising.
