Flourish by Dana Tanamachi

This gorgeous video details the process of a personal project by graphic designer and letterer Dana Tanamachi. The project is entitled "Flourish" and it's amazing! Using a gold paint pen on a dark wall, Tanamachi hand-draws fraktur letterforms filled with intricate, Japanese-inspired patterns to spell out the word "Flourish." 

I love how the Japanese-inspired patterns lend a softer feel to the fraktur letterforms that can sometimes seen harsh due to their sharp, angular forms. I also love how the gold paint pen illuminates the letters on the dark wall.

To discover the reason for Tanamachi's choice of the word "Flourish," check out her blog post describing the inspiration behind the project.  The post also showcases more photos from the project.
