Today I bring you the work of artist, letterer, illustrator, and designer Jen Mussari. Below are a few favorites from her site. Enjoy!
Today I bring you the work of Greg Coulton, a designer and illustrator based in London. As described (much better than I ever could) in his bio,
“Whether he’s creating brand stories or artwork for packaging, portraits or album covers, the art of storytelling is at the heart of Greg’s work. His illustration philosophy – “The devil is in the detail”, pretty much defines everything he does.
Intricate and multi-layered, his hand drawn illustrations are driven by the principles of good communication design, honed during 12 years designing in London Ad agencies.
Add to this his traditional draftmanship skills and love of exuberant, Baroque-inspired flourishes, the end result is Greg’s unique works of meticulous detail and enchanting narratives.”
I particularly liked his editorial illustration, “Guy Clark”, featured below.
Today I’d like to share the work of Jill De Haan. Jill is a graphic designer who loves working with her hands, incporating her love of drawing, painting, sewing, and the “hand made” aesthetic in her work where ever she can. She also has “a love for “old-timey” things and often take a vintage-looking route when using type, illustration, and color.” Below I’m featuring her Europe Trip Lettering project. Enjoy!
Today I bring you the lovely work of Alexandra Snowdon, who I discovered via Pinterest. I found her “About Me” page really inspiring, so instead of retelling it here- I urge you to check it out for yourself. I love her hand-drawn typography, folksy illustration style, and inspiring words. Below are a few of my favorites.

Today I bring you the work of Cocorrina, the freelance design studio of Corina. I pin her work often on Pinterest- so you may have already seen some of it. Corina lives on an island off Greece, (making her Instagram a must-see!), and I think her work speaks to that laid-back island vibe. Below I’m sharing some of her handwriting and calligraphy work. Be sure to visit her site to see the rest!

Today I bring you the work of Stéphane Casier, of the Yeaaah! Studio, based in Paris. Casier is a designer and illustrator with a speciality in posters and album art. I came across snipets of the Crown Cardinals project over on Pinterest and wanted to share the full project here. All elements are hand-drawn, some elements are redrawn from 19th and early 20th centuries illustrations. I love that the artist included the process images as well with this project. Enjoy!
