Chalk it up
My, my, my! The time has passed by so quickly and I’ve sorely neglected my blog Busy with work and other projects have taken me away from posting regularly.
Things have finally died down a bit (better to be busy than not, right?). Though Vancouver is slowly falling into the winter months! Rain and gloom for the next nine months!
But back on it! I’ll be sure to be on the look out for all things beautiful and fortunately today’s search came across Dana Tanamachi, a Graphic Designer and custom chalk letterer hailing from Brooklyn, New York. Tanamachi worked under the world renowned Louise Fili at Louise Fili Ltd. If you know anything about typography, you know anyone that worked at Lousie Fill Ltd. is worth their salt (and then some). From Tanamachi‘s website:
Dana works full time as a custom chalk letterer and has been commissioned by clients such as West Elm, Rugby Ralph Lauren, Google, The Ace Hotel, Adidas, EveryDay with Rachael Ray, Harper Collins UK, and Garden & Gun Magazine.
In 2011, Dana was named a Young Gun (YG9) by the Art Directors Club.
And her work is just WOW! I love how her lettering and typography transforms into an intricate design and artwork (personally, my chalk experience is limited to hopscotch). Simply beautiful typography!
