what hand lettering

in hand lettering.

My first font is done!
Organic Cotton is a straightforward, friendly and highly legible typeface. The lettering is based on contemporary brush/pen lettering with a little fun and lushness added. It is solid, fluid and organic without being hippie-dippy or whimsical - not that I am opposed to those things.
Organic Cotton is well suited for packaging and branding and it comes with a 69 alternates, 28 swashes, and 14 ornaments.

Hand Lettering for Water Valley Advertising

Water Valley is a new housing development in Winsor, Colorado. Residents can enjoy breathtaking views
of the Rocky Mountains while sailing or fishing on a lake outside of their back door. It is all about the WATER.

The lettering has a Colorado feel with a touch of California thrown in.
It's casual, approachable, friendly, fluid, with an air of sophistication.

I worked with Miles BrandDNA, Englewood CO, on this project. Shan Thompson was the Design Director.
