Dana Tanamachi {Brooklyn}


I think you might just enjoy this one. Texas-born Brooklyn-adopted Dana Tanamachi is a hugely talented typographer. But more than that, she has etched a remarkable name for herself producing work of sheer beauty and originality in chalk, working for clients as West Elm, Rugby Ralph Lauren, Google, The Ace Hotel, Adidas, EveryDay with Rachael Ray, Harper Collins UK, and Garden & Gun Magazine.

Originally moving from The Lone Star State to make her name in the Big Apple as a Broadway show poster designer, the demand to commission her chalk lettering skills has allowed the recently named Art Director’s Young Gun 2011 to do it fulltime. Not keen to stop there however, Tanamachi has translated her stylings back to her roots of packaging design, collaborating with Brandever to pick up Double Gold for Individual Label Design at the San Francisco International Wine Competition. Not too shabby!

Check out her blog for updates and her Vimeo channel for more superb time-lapse videos.
