hand-lettering http://design.org/tags/hand-lettering en Illustrious and Hand-Lettered Design by Adam Hayes http://design.org/blog/illustrious-and-hand-lettered-design-adam-hayes <p><a href="http://mrahayes.com/" target="Adam Hayes">Adam Hayes</a> is an illustrator and designer in England. He recently released a new website, which displays his colorful work in thumbnails that pop—the site itself looks like an intentional, responsive illustration. His varied lettering style brings words and designs to life through custom forms and textures, and I have a soft spot for geometric shapes like those found throughout his work. </p> <div class="field
