The images above are samples from letterer/designer Drew Melton’s work from “The Phraseology Project”. The idea is a basic site with a form where Drew takes user submitted words or phrases and designs them with type. Since the project launched it has seen over 20,000 submissions and continues to be an outlet for creative play for [...]
