Four Letter Words.Typography illustrations

Michael Dowell, a London-based designer, for a few months now he has  been filling up a Moleskine sketchbook he won from Creative Review with a self set brief – Illustrate four letter words using typography.

The brief was a rather simple one and I tried not to think too long and hard over the words I chose. Some took 30mins to sketch and some I tweaked for days. The plan is to fill the sketch pad and vectorise my favourites. This project isn’t one that I see as being finished here. It’s an on-going passion of mine that you can be certain to see lots more of.

If you want to discover all the gallery produced by him, here‘s his website.

Amazing creativity.

    It would be impossible for me to count hours I have spent doodling and stylizing my initials, my first or last name, or other short words who’s letters flow together
