One name that popped up a few times when browsing through FPO’s Best of 2013 lists was Kevin Cantrell. I wasn’t surprised given this very accomplished designer and letterer is known for his vintage-inspired typographic work. What makes Cantrell’s work so unique is his dedication to crafting each piece using traditional techniques. Yep, we’re talking some serious poster plates made from solid cast iron — some of which are actually available from his online store.
The poster below titled ‘Luminares’ is inspired by vintage map insurance lettering and serves as a great example of his work. Available for purchase here.
