// Chalkboards of Dana Tanamachi
5 November, 2011  |  typography

I came across the amazing chalk lettering by graphic designer and now full time chalk letterist (doubt thats a word?) Dana Tanamachi from Brooklyn, NYC. She has done some beautiful pieces for clients like Ralph Lauren, Google, Adidas as well as many others. Her work makes me wish i played with the chalkboard a little more when I was young. I also appreciate the amount of time it must take to do each one of these custom pieces. Check out the time lapse videos of Dana’s work at the bottom.

  1. Hello ©å®ø£¥ñ!

    Greetings from Los Angeles.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Dana in Brooklyn this summer. It will come as little surprise that she is as awesome and nice as her work.

    Dana has gotten acclaim that she richly deserves. If I can find the right project, I swear we will collaborate on a piece. Her type. My motion.

    Cheers,
    Bill.
