About Seb Lester

Affectionately dubbed the “Banksy of calligraphy," English designer Seb Lester is a celebrated master calligrapher, artist, and custom-typeface virtuoso. He has garnered worldwide recognition for his iconic, hand-lettered designs for clients like NASA, Apple, Nike, Intel, The New York Times, the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, and JD Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye final reissue (Penguin Books). On Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube, @SebLester’s million-plus fans wait for his calligraphy creations and time-lapse videos showing his handiwork, which are often with an edge of humor, like his olde English grocery list with Pop Tarts or his “Digital Is Dead" piece done with a goose quill.
