Timelapse Chalk Typography Through Hampton Creative

By on Oct 27, 2012 in ART & DESIGN | 2 comments

I got hooked to chalk typography right after I spotted Dana Tanamachi’s amazing work. It was cool to see an alternative process to typography without using the digital palette and it was also nice to see how her work reflected the heritage of sign makers of the past. With only chalk in her hand, she was able to create great and detailed banners and ads that have been featured in a variety of NYC shops and even print publication such as Oprah’s “O, The Oprah Magazine.”

Design team Hampton Creative knows and details the art as well and I recently stumbled upon a time-lapse of their 10th anniversary chalk typography exhibit. Peek the amazing work process below and start your weekend inspiration right.

    Hey, thanks Michael – we really appreciate the opportunity to be featured on your site.

    Really love what you’re doing with Fitted Life – your lookbook is killer.

    We’ve actually got another chalk art project in the can and should be releasing it within the next week.

      No problem Chris and your work and your team is quite inspirational! I’m a huge fan of handmade lettering/typography so it was a pleasure coming across your work.

      Thanks for all the kind comments about Fitted Life. We truly appreciate all the positive feedback.

      We can’t wait to see what your creatives will do for the next chalk art project. It’s going to be a good one! I’ll stay tuned for it!
