Lettering by Tony Forster

Posted on May 16th 2011

During my first week studying graphic design at university (1998), I borrowed several books from the library. A particular page in one book stood out, and I photocopied it and stuck it to the wall of my workspace. The photocopied sheet (which I still have) showed the work of Tony Forster, a lettering designer from Manchester.

Forster passed away in 2008, but I was reminded of his work when he was profiled in Grafik Magazine (issue 189). The image above is a self-promotional poster showcasing a variety of Tony’s lettering styles, from fluid calligraphic arrangements to more formal typographic logos.

13 years have now passed since my initial discovery, but I still marvel at the craftsmanship of Tony’s work.
