Synopsis:

Part inspiration and part workbook, these hand-drawn type of images will inspire and excite any designer to draw and explore type. Drawing Type features real-world projects and sketchbooks of well-known type designers, including interviews about their processes. Playful, hand-drawn type can easily be used in a range of disciplines within design and illustration such as packaging, editorial, posters, advertising, online graphics, and signage; the hand-made aesthetic is more prevalent now than ever.

Alex Fowkes will help you to create custom lettering and typographic layouts. Alex encourages you to start drawing all kinds of typography, including serifs, sans serifs, and scripts. He provides ample examples of typefaces to draw inspiration from so you can become confident enough to draw your own. Drawing Type is perfect for learning and developing your skills at home or in a classroom--an invaluable resource that you can refer to again and again! 

Review: RIVISTA UFFICIALE NBA MAGAZINE COVER RIVISTA UFFICIALE NBA MAGAZINE COVER

Francesco Poroli

FRANCESCO POROLI IS A FREELANCE ART DIRECTOR AND ILLUSTRATOR BASED IN MILAN. SINCE 2000, HE HAS WORKED FOR A WIDE RANGE OF CLIENTS, INCLUDING THE NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE, WIRED, GOOGLE, THE NBA, ADIDAS, AND MORE.

RIVISTA UFFICIALE NBA MAGAZINE COVERS

Rivista Ufficiale NBA is the official—and only—NBA magazine in Italy. Editorial content and graphic design are done by the in-house editorial staff. I printed out the cover with the chosen photo and the bold logo and then started to draw all the text around these elements, trying to fill all the space. Then everything was scanned and imported into Photoshop. For the New York issue, I just inverted the color from black to white, because I wanted to have a real rough, handwritten feeling on the cover. In the interview issue, I played around with the team colors, which stood out nicely against the white background and player’s uniform.
