Rochester: Aaron Meshon

As a graduate of RIT in Rochester, it brought a smile when I ran across these fun illustrations of downtown Rochester. Made me miss everything there and want to go back and vist immediately!

These were illustrated by Aaron Meshon (who was previously featured) for a Nazarath College magazine.

Aaron Meshon

I’m doing some research this week for a new secret project at work involving maps. So as a warning, you might see ¬†lot of map inspiration popping up in the near future!

Absolutely love this style for a wall mural – and it happens to be of a coffeeshop in Brooklyn across from work which means I can visit it in person every day! The artist/illustrator is Aaron Meshon and if you haven’t previously seen any of his work, you should get on that! He actually has a children’s book that is going to be released this year.

Hand Lettering: Inspiration

I’ve been trying to work hand lettering more into my daily habits and have drawn inspiration from a few amazing designers. If you haven’t seen work by Sean McCabe yet, get on it. Seriously amazing and seriously inspirational. This is a collection of work from a bunch of various designers – check out the link to see their dribbble portfolios.

Where do you find inspiration for hand lettering?

Hand Lettering – BMD Design

Ran across this awesome work from BMD Design in France. If you haven’t seen their work yet, get on it! Very cool hand lettering and strictly black and white design. They’ve worked on everything from designing wine bottle labels to t-shirts to logos.
