The Future Belongs to the Curious

Gemma O’Brien is an Australian artist and designer specialising in lettering, illustration and typography. She’s has done stunning work with Apple, Adobe, Qantas, Volcom, The New York Times, etc.

She creates hand-lettering or custom typography for commercial clients, but also creates more conceptual personal work, hosts workshops across Australia and speaks at design conferences. I’m a huge fan, in particular of her large-scale painted work.

In the last five years there’s been a real typography boom, both inside and outside the design spheres. Especially the craft side: letterpress printing, hand-rendered lettering, sign painting, calligraphy and brushwork are all back in the spotlight.
