Lettering vignette for King Magazine

Lettering sketch for King Magazine vignette.

Hand-drawn type for men.

Joakim Kullberg, Art Director at King Magazine, one of the largest magazines for men in Sweden, needed a vignette for a food recipe in their guide pages. This vignette will span over four issues of the magazine. Joakim was unsure of which style that suited the visual form of King. So I started with exploring some different directions. After finding a suitable style of lettering, inspired by my previous project Bukowski quote-poster, I refined it and scanned it into the computer. I then traced it and re-drew it from scratch in Adobe Illustrator. After setting the ground I added textures to get the right feeling. I am really happy with the outcome of this vignette for King Magazine!

“I really recommend Björn. He delivered excellent results, was truly service-minded along the way and delivered everything right on time. He also has a reasonable pricing and a professional mindset.”
– Joakim Kullberg, Art Director at King Magazine
