Handmade Typography Projects That Will Inspire You

When personal computers with graphical user interfaces became a mainstay in the workplace and universities in the mid-1980’s, it wasn’t long before people started playing around with them to see what they could really do. Of course, one of the greatest things to come out of the personal computer was the ability to create art digitally. Programs such as MS Paint and Adobe’s early versions Illustrator made it easy for anyone with access to a computer to create digital art, forever changing the field of design.

Today, it’s great to see that a lot of artists are combining analog and digital workflows. The imperfect lines created by a designer’s hands lends a certain uniqueness to a project. While the digital workflows an artist employs provides a level of polish and control, allowing a project to have a truly professional and deliberate look.

Check out some great hand-made typographic projects by some really great artists!
