Typographical Emotion

Sometimes the best part of hand lettering is it's imperfection. We live in such a digital world where every stroke is clinical in it precision. The personal touch, the humanity, is left out of much design. Which is great for many things, but sometimes its nice to have an element of personal touch in graphic design. Mary Kate McDevitt's work is a great example of this. You can see the personality of the designer in all of her work. Emotion is evident in each piece. That's what makes great handmade type.

See a few more examples of her work after the jump.
