Wow, I really respect this woman. Dana Tanamachi is a designer and custom chalk letterer living in Brooklyn. That’s right, custom chalk letterer. I bet that looks really cool on her resume. She does a variety of work including package design, magazine and catalog work, and so much more.
As I was watching some of her time lapse videos of her work, it just made me sad. why? Because her work isn’t permanent. But maybe that’s how she likes it.
Dana’s most recent work is the O magazine cover. It’s the first cover done entirely hand- lettered. What an honor! Also, check out the West Elm catalogue she worked on. So beautiful.
Check out more of her work on her website!
I missed my calling apparently. I want to be a custom chalk letterer!
