    Creative Collaborations, with Wes Franklin

    Creative Collaborations, with Wes Franklin

    Wes Franklin is a lettering artist based in Bendigo in Victoria and known for his relaxed script lettering, and we got to know Wes because of his work in the last four Typism books. Wes has a focus on mural and logo work and likes to work with small businesses, non-profits and community groups.
    That’s exactly why we asked Wes on to the Typism podcast to talk about collaboration. Many lettering artists and freelancers work in isolation so it’s nice to see the effect working with others can have on our work.

    The value of not working, with Kell Sunshine

    The value of not working, with Kell Sunshine

    Kell Sunshine is a lettering artist based in New Zealand and known for her gorgeous colour palettes and mural work. There's barely a town left in New Zealand without one of her gorgeous works gracing the walls.
    One of the gifts that Kelly gave me when she spoke at the Typis conference was a sticker that says stop being so busy.
    We asked Kell on to the Typism podcast to talk about a topic that lettering artists often struggle with, especially in this age of the internet and that's to stop wearing busyness as a badge of honour.
