Graphic designer, Carolyn Sewell, has a portfolio brimming with inspirational examples of well-executed type treatment– and we’re not the only ones admiring her unique, illustrative style.
Sewell’s hand-drawn letters have earned recognition from industry publications like HOW, Graphic Design USA, CMYK Magazine, Uppercase Magazine, The Washington Post, and the Washingtonian Magazine; and design awards competitions like the ADDYs and the Art Director’s Club of Metropolitan Washington (ADCMW) Annual Show.
Sewell shares her passion for typography on Flickr, where she curates an online collection photos of street signs and other forms of discovered typography called Pedestrian Typography, and shares elaborate illustrations from her sketchbooks. As if that weren’t enough typographic inspiration, Sewell also maintains a special design project, Postcards to My Parents, an exhibition of hand-drawn postcards that she mailed to her parents for 365 consecutive days starting on their wedding anniversary on July 23, 2009.
