Vintage Lettering

Custom lettering design

Creative brief

Vintage inspired typography combined with detailed/ornamental line art. A Baroque look & feel. Before reading it should already convey the vintage feeling to the viewer, then when reading the word ‘vintage’ it should complete the whole story.

Inspiration & Research

I submerged myself in ornamental style scrollwork ranging from Renaissance to Baroque & Rococo art. I LOVED it (and got inspired and tried my hand at scrollwork, check it here). Inspiration was everywhere, I particularly enjoy figuring out how masters before me tackled their problems.
