A “font” of information on lettering styles!
The Art of Whimsical Lettering is an artful instruction book on creating stylized fonts and expressive artwork with personal handwriting skills. Author Joanne Sharpe shows you how to create exuberant and personalized writing styles for your artwork–whether it be a journal, canvas art, or other projects that use text.
After an overview of Joanne’s favorite tools and surfaces, take a peek into Joanne’s personal lettering journal to discover how you too can collect inspiration, hone your lettering skills, and tap into your natural creativity. Joanne then demonstrates twenty art techniques for creating a variety of lettering styles using many different tools. She provides you with fifteen basic alphabets, ranging from simple pen-and-ink renditions to increasingly elaborated texts that reference calligraphy, vintage fonts, and doodle art, among other styles. Joanne also teaches you how to turn prosaic lettering into page art itself, merging text into illustration, or ornamenting words with decorative drawings.

We don’t usually see many firms showing off their tobacco clients. Poland based Noeeko is the exception with its bold design for Elixyr cigarettes. The packaging features a dark, minimal, and clean design, even including glow in the dark ink.
"We were tasked to design limited editions cigarette packaging for Luxembourg tobacco company. Elixyr cigarettes are produced in Spain & Belgium in two different types - king size and hard pack. It’s a brand for smokers who want something young, fresh and dynamic. The client’s briefing called for a minimalist and clean design with big vertical elixyr logo on front and gold, blue and red lines around. The design draws inspiration from elixyr logo and letter x. Glow in the dark printing gives unique vibe and fun."
