Stunning Chalk Lettering by Dana Tanamachi


June already! And what better way to begin this month than with some stunning and inspiring lettering by the ├╝ber talented Dana Tanamachi! And I don’t mean just any type of lettering. Dana’s beautiful, detailed and intricate pieces are chalk based! I don’t know if you’ve ever tried drawing on a chalkboard (I must admit this got me into some trouble during my school days) but it is not a simple task. At all! Dana’s work has been featured in numerous sites and publications already and I am sure we’ll see more amazing things coming from this talented lady. Check out her work and some bonus process videos…

DANA TANAMACHI is a graphic designer and custom chalk letterer who hails from the Lone Star State, but currently resides in Brooklyn, New York. She enjoys crafting, reading, walking, and especially listening to Country music from the 1990s.

In June 2008, Dana moved to New York City and began working at SpotCo designing posters for Broadway shows. Currently, she works at Louise Fili Ltd, a NYC-based studio specializing in logo, package, restaurant, and book design.

After hours, she can be found writing on people’s walls all over New York City as a custom chalk letterer. And she is most certainly available for commission.
