Lettering design is a skill I really admire and envy.

Calligraphic flow, typographic knowledge and creative artistry all go hand in hand, creating balanced, beautiful artwork for logos, illustration, apparel and loads of other end uses.

If you’re looking for someone to create you a piece of custom lettering art, people to follow the work of or even just a bit of eye candy, here’s ten great artists you should know.
