Nantucket Island School of Design and the Arts


My recent project for the Nantucket Island Art school. This is a card that is going to be mailed out to potential donors and future patrons of the school.
I also designed a piece that the founder/director can write a personal note and enclose it in the envelope. I think it is great to send this at this time of year. It hopefully gets people to think about their summer plans

Funky Type to Wear

Each of these designs features a word or phrase uniquely styled and hand lettered by Mark Simonson. The visual themes range from straightforward to ironic; from cryptic to obvious. Many are open to interpretation. Some may be mistaken for brand names or logos. Common to all the designs is Mark's enthusiasm for the expressiveness of hand lettering. - From Mark Simonson.

I think they are very clever
