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.
