Gemma O’Brien has been an inspiration and art crush of mine for a while now. She’s a designer, artist, typographer and teacher specializing in all things type.
Handmade typography, calligraphic lettering, and illustrative digital work; Gemma works across all mediums, from small scale to larger-than-life murals. She’s created commercial work for clients including Monster Children, Heinz, Volcom, The New York Times, Qantas, Smirnoff, Kirin and many more. Her artwork and typographic murals have been exhibited in numerous galleries around the world and have gotten her recognition within the design and type community. The short video below is O’Brien describing her journey from a student in Uni to where she is today.
