Graham and Spenser
It's wonderful when a client sends me the lettering work I did for them on product. Here's the Graham and Spencer logotype in use on a variety of things: catalogs, portfolios, pencils and pads, labels and hang tags...all looking fabulous! And best of all, their clothing is lovely too.
Classic chrome
Ford Fury logo
I love great lettering and the play of light on chrome, whether it's 
photographic, photoshopped, or airbrushed. So what could be better than Steven Coles' wonderful selection of glistening 
Imperial logotype chrome logotypes on

Shot by Coles throughout the US and Europe, these photos are
sure to delight lettering, photography and car aficionados alike. Coles has a great eye for typography and lettering and for unique camera angles and doesn't hesitate to include his more weather-beaten finds.
There are a few other metallic goodies such as Leica logos included for your visual pleasure. The site is sure to spark fond recollections of  automobiles that have played a role in your life and perhaps provide a laugh or two (that old Ford logo!).
