When you love fonts and lettering, you of course follow plenty of awesome people who either create fonts, do lettering or both. Well, today on Thursday Type, I’m sharing a few of my favorite lettering people to follow. I should say over the course of this blog series I’ll be sharing a few of my favorites. But let’s kick it off with the first letterer Kiley in Kentucky.
#1 Kiley in Kentucky is new to me. I discovered this awesome letterer via Pinterest and promptly followed her on Instagram. What pulled me in was her 50 ways to letter series. One of my goals is to practice lettering more and perfect my skill and the 50 ways to letter series is perfect. You can print off all the sheets or screenshot and upload them to your iPad Pro. Either way you choose, this is a fun way to learn more about lettering and practicing the letters of the alphabet in a variety of ways.
Amanda Arneill’s lettering is GORGEOUS! I’m in awe of what she does and and seeing her work and watching her videos is truly inspiring and makes me want to practice more on lettering.

Lauren Essl is a calligrapher I discovered through Instagram.

One of the first books on lettering I bought was this one by Mary Kate McDevitt. Mary Kate McDevitt’s work is amazing. Her lettering is not just about the text but turns letters into beautiful works of art with illustrations and adding dimension to the letters.
