Trend Report // Hand Lettering

 
Insta Lust Hand Letting // Print (Em) Shop
 

If my previous blog header was any indication, I have a thing for hand lettering. Hand lettering can be girly or edgy, but the messages that accompany them are often the most inspiring part. 

Calligraphy (aka hand lettering) has been around for centuries, so clearly I am not the only one crushing on it! Hand letting has never been more trendy on Instagram, so it's time to take a look at the ways hand letter-ers show off their craft.

1 Black + White // White ink on black or black ink on white, either way this shot shows off the hand lettering. It's simple + pure. This is a great way for a beginner to test out their hand lettering + share it to a wider audience.

2 Simple, but branded // If you take a look at Rachel Gadiel's Instagram, you will see soft colors + on point design. This hand lettered piece is different than her other Instagrams, but the light pink fits right in.

3 Up on the wall // Hand letting is art, so it deserves to be on the walls. Use colored tape that matches your branding + included a few relevant props to finish off the Instagram.

4 Still life // A still life, but your hand lettered work is the star. This is one of the most popular ways to display work on Instagram, plus you can tailor the props to your branding.
