This series is created by David Soto – a Logo and Typography Designer based in New York City.

“I usually thumbnail in my travel sketchbook. I then scan and manipulate my sketches in Photoshop if necessary. I send the image to my iPad Pro and create the final draft. My grid lines start out out with the basics of lettering (baseline, x-height, etc.) From there I usually create guides based on specific relationships between lines, spaces or other letters.

I usually avoid grids early in the process. Grids can become an obstacle rather than a tool when introduced at the wrong time.

Doyald Young is a huge inspiration for me. What I love about his work was the 100% focus on the letterforms themselves. Being meticulous and hand drawing all his work. I look upto him and admire his focus. His work ethic is what I aim for”. – David Soto
