As usual we will be kicking off a new week with some new type related inspiration for you guys. And today’s we will be taking a closer look at the work of Mary Kate McDevitt – a letterer and illustrator based in Philadelphia.
While most lettering artists try to perfect their designs as much as possible, Mary Kate almost goes in the opposite direction by keeping her work quite organic and non-perfect, just to give it a bit more character. And when looking at her work I can actually see a slight resemblance to the work of Jon Contino in some pieces. But instead of dark, monotoned color schemes, Mary Kate tends to use vibrant colors and illustrative details on and around her letters to make her pieces pop.
If you like Mary Kat’s style and you’re interested in learning more about her process of illustration & lettering, make sure to check out her video classes on Skillshare.
