Typography Tuesday: Hand Lettered Inspirational Quotes by Sean McCabe

If your a fan of hand lettering, you have probably seen the work of Sean McCabe on Pinterest or other various places inspirational quotes can be found. If you have not, you are in for a real treat.

The San Antonio Texas based designer describes himself as a “hand lettering artist and type designer”. With a clear passion for all things hand lettering, McCabe states, “I view lettering as a form of voice. I use it to speak the things I want to say. I am fascinated by its power. When you create beautiful lettering, that work garners attention for its own sake. It simultaneously creates a platform from which you can speak a message. You have people’s attention—now what will you say? I use this opportunity to speak messages of positivity and encouragement. In general, most people see words and read sentences to derive meaning. I see letters as beautiful shapes and curves with forms full of beauty.”
