The Hand Workshop | Handcrafted Lettering by BLKBK

Tailored Letterforms

Your story in every character: There are thousands of fonts on the market. Not all are created equal. Many companies have discovered that the standard character set doesn’t cover all internationalization requirements for a typeface. With a custom font we are able to provide you with a unique and original typeface that translates your keyboard characters into your personal communicative vision. Consideration is taken in line spacing, kerning, weights, multi-language characters, alternate letter options, and ligatures.

The Art of Drawing Letters

We make custom-designed lettering, providing brands with a voice as unique as that of any individual—silky like Sade, or bass like Barry White. Letter design is a powerful element of branding, and having proprietary lettering can set you apart. This service is ideal for brands that need custom letters or phrases for taglines or titles but don't need a full font family. We craft original, exclusive letterforms for your brand, all made by hand before being digitized. Our precise understanding of space and form ensures the style you want is perfectly captured.

A Recognizable Graphic Element

Logos are typographic solutions. Your logo can include a name, symbol, or trademark that represents your organization or product, garnering instant public recognition. A graphic mark, emblem, or symbol can also incorporate custom lettering, creating a visual identity as recognizable as any colour, pattern, or slogan. We can assist with every part of logo development. Our skills add significantly to the styling and crafting of logotypes, both typographically and in overall form.

Consumer Perception

Differentiate your brand through visual recognition. There are requirements to differentiating brands and articulating their personalities. Brand letter design means immediate visual recognition. Some details in traditional font design need to be weighed in favor of visual immediacy. We articulate name, logo, lettering, and tone, to reflect company values and appeal to their intended demographic. Through correspondence we can establish balance between the competing demands within any brand.
