This week we’re featuring Amber Garner and all her lettering talents! We love the different typography and media she uses to enhance her designs. Another aspect of Amber’s work philosophy that resonates with us is that she’s constantly practicing her lettering skills. When you look at her work it looks effortless, but that piece took practice, thought and even research! To learn more about Amber and how she honed her craft read on!

Castle Logo: Tell us a little about yourself as well as how you got your start in lettering.

logo@2x: I’m currently living in Washington, DC with my fiancé and a few plants that have managed to survive my brown thumb. I’ve always been attracted to design, especially lettering and typography, but I’d never really sat down and deliberately attempted hand lettering. A few years ago I was on a plane with my sketchbook, and decided to try my hand at drawing out a quote from Harry Potter – “Words are our most inexhaustible source of magic.” It wasn’t pretty, but it was love at first flourish! I’ve practiced lettering in one form or another pretty much every day since then.
