Hand lettering is basically illustrating letters. With hand lettering, each letter is carefully thought out and considered within the greater composition. It’s different from calligraphy, where basic strokes are used to form letters and words. When creating a hand lettered composition, we use the elements of design to create an impactful composition that tells a story.
Lauren Kenney is a hand letterer and designer. She mainly works with branding and making pretty things with both companies and individuals. Always drawing, Lauren has been hand lettering since childhood, but learned a name for it about 5 years ago.
