I researched the work of Edward Fella – an American graphic designer, artist and educator.
I find his hand-drawn lettering very interesting. His approach to typography seems to be very personal and unique. The typefaces vary in sizes and shapes, some of them are very simple and others contain lots of different colours and elements.
Some of his work looks abstract and has a feel of wildness achieved by mixing very different looking styles of fonts.
The illustration above contains very simple images but as a whole it looks very playful and shows how much can be achieved with basic elements and techniques. It is all achieved by hand drawing which adds to the ‘real’ and ‘going back to basics’ feel to it. You feel like experimenting yourself with just a few pencils and a piece of paper.
