Watch: The Wisdom of Lettering Artist Simon Walker

In the third installment of On Design, the Learning Studio’s joint collaboration with ACU Art & Design, we sat down with the lettering artist and designer Simon Walker.

You’ve probably seen Simon’s work—his eye-popping lettering adorns the cover of a recent Brené Brown book, as well as plenty of magazine spreads and many of the food and drink labels you’ll come across on a casual grocery store run. Before going into business for himself, Simon got his start as a designer at the Austin agency GSD&M.

Following a recent lettering workshop with ACU Art & Design students, Simon was kind enough to sit down and share his wisdom with us.
