Hand Drawn Lettering Elements: All American Grit
Introducing the Hand Drawn Lettering Elements: All American Grit
We, here at Go Media, are in love with letters. That’s why we’re in awe of calligrapher Laura Di Piazza’s first Arsenal product, Hand Drawn Lettering Elements: All American Grit.
THIS IS NOT A FONT – This is a Photoshop file with many different versions of text that you copy and paste into your project.
This lettering pack includes words that we associate with America’s strong work ethics and American-made pride. Laura used tools including the Japanese-made pointed pan Nikko G nib, German-made Haff ruling pen, homemade cola pen, various square edge brushes and the beloved American-made sharpie to craft up the 130 words included in the pack.
The pack includes the following words in various styles and scripts: work hard, craft, rugged, u.s.a., industries, brotherhood, america, american, pride, honest, genuine, superior, quality, tough, vintage, goods, handcrafted, handmade, original, est., magic, fine, custom, trademark, union, blue collar, artisan and supply.
The lovely lettered words are available in an organized, layered Photoshop document.
As a bonus we’re throwing in three paper textures from our Paper Texture Pack.
Here’s a little bit about the pack from Laura herself:
“This lettering pack is all-American! It includes words that we associate with America’s strong work ethics and American-made pride. During my recent travels to Germany, Italy, Switzerland and Austria I encountered some people’s opinions about American-made products and the general impression was that American-made is usually equated with ‘well-made’.
As a calligrapher I mainly engage in non-modified lettering, where the first go is the only go for a word, sentence, paragraph or page. And if it doesn’t come out the way I intended I either accept the results or do it over. The lack of editing has helped me to relax and embrace a certain flow when I letter.
The tools I used for this pack include the Japanese-made pointed pen Nikko G nib (originally designed for Anime artists), German-made Haff ruling pen (originally an architectural tool) , homemade cola pen (yes, the writing tip is made out of a small piece of a Coca Cola can), various square edge brushes and the beloved American-made Sharpie.”
