In today’s typography gallery we’ll just be focusing on tremendous hand lettering. I don’t think a single day passes without me coming across a famous quote in a vintage style with a nice photo in the background. Don’t get me wrong, I like that style, but it can also be packed with so many clichés that my eyes hurt. In my opinion the key is to finding a unique style or using such exceptional technique that the piece simply stands out from all the noise. And that pretty much goes for all creative fields, not just lettering. So simply try to stand out. In this gallery I’ve put together a collection of over 30 hand lettering designs that I feel stands out from the crowd. Hope you like them.

Which piece is your favorite? Let us know by dropping a line in the comments.
