I wanted to go out and find the top letterers in the last year so I could pull inspiration from them and figure out how they got to the top. Mike Moloney, founder and editor of Webelemint wrote about nine talented letterers and here they are:
Who doesn't love the ampersand? If you don't you're just darn crazy. Get out. Go home. You don't belong here. If you Google "ampersand obsession," you can go to the 10th page of results and still find blog posts of designers obsessing about this curvy, delicious character.
It's a cute website made by letterer Martina Flor and calligrapher Giuseppe Salerno. These two met at Typo Stammtisch in Berlin and made this website as a project. They each choose a letter and one letters and the other does calligraphy. Then visitors can vote on which one they prefer! It's much like TypeFight.com! These two have also published a book and have been featured on several websites.
