A lot of projects can get by with a suitable font, but sometimes you can't find a font that fits. When that happens you might decide to use hand-drawn lettering, either using an existing font as the basis for a new logotype/illustration, or something completely bespoke. The images below all feature lettering I've drawn from scratch to create something that couldn't be replicated using existing fonts/typefaces.
Simon took our initial concept to very loose script and created a list of illustrations we needed to make our whiteboard video simply work. He delivered the first few illustrations in sketch form, and we knew he was going to nail it. On budget and on time every step of the way, Simon was not only a genius illustrator but a lovely person to work with. He has a talent for taking the everyday and making it sing. He delighted our audience with his clever and cute characters, and went beyond what we thought was even possible. We'd work with him again in a heartbeat. Jennifer del Greco, pndu.org
