10 Must-Follow Instagram Accounts for Typography Lovers

I love typography especially hand lettering. I can easily lose track of time when browsing typography on Pinterest and Instagram. I wanted to my favourite typography accounts on Instagram. They’re the perfect place to find some inspiration and a little bit of lettering envy!

1. Gemma O’Brien 

I first fell for Gemma’s work at Semi Permanent in 2013. Her typography has been used for advertising campaigns by Brancott Estate winesWoolworths and a stunning series of hand painted billboards for Kirin.

Plus she also started the Instagram “Sick Bag Challenge”, where people create beautiful typography puns on sick bags while on flights. Seriously, she makes sick bags into art.

Of all the accounts in this list, Laura’s is by far the prettiest! She shares whimsical wedding stationary and party decorations featuring her gorgeous hand lettering.

9. Dirty Bandits 

Combining two of my favourite things, hand lettering and puns, this account is worth a follow for the eye candy and wit.

10. Sara Marshall 

I only recently started following Kiwi lettering artist Sara Marshall . At first, I wasn’t sure whether to include her in this list. She’s only posted 16 times and been on Instagram for two months. But she already has over 1,300 followers because of her amazing reworks of classic logos (and she was featured by The Daily Type). I’m hoping we see a lot more posts from Sara!

It never ceases to amaze me the amazing art people create with type. I’m thinking my next 30 day challenge might have to include typography! I have just 4 days left on my blogging challenge and I’m keen to keep the momentum going with blogging while also adding in a new challenge to stretch my creativity.
