Best Use of Typography

What happens when you mix the craft of hand-lettering with dazzling, digital typography? You get our 2021 nominees that are nothing short of bold.


Mky’s artwork just has so much energy! Her use of letter shapes, illustrations and colors is perfectly balanced. It's so lively and expressive. The lettering in particular has a good flow, and although the message is complex, it's still easy to read.

Carmi Grau

Inspired by Andrea’s (Mky’s) bright color palettes, quirky letterforms and fun dimensions, this client approached Andrea to create a print to brighten up their living room—and we’re glad they did! The resulting typographic piece is dynamic, dreamy and bold. The lettering is well-crafted and charming to read, while also translating the magic of reading a good book.
