Seb Lester has released a short film about his work as an artist and designer. He has also released two new limited edition prints and some new originals. You can view and buy them at seblester.co.uk. Lastly, he’s also updated his site with new client work all of which is fantastic as always.
Typographer Seb Lester has released another beautiful print with a simple message, ‘peace’. That message is communicated however through a complex and beautiful work of artistic typography. To find out more about purchasing the print visit Lester’s website.
Typographer Seb Lester wrote in this morning that he has updated both his commercial portfolio as well as his personal storefront with some great new posters. Seb is pretty amazing when about his craft and attention to detail when it comes to typography and everyone at Changethethought is a big fan of his work.
Seb Lester is etching an inarguable place in the current annals of typographic history (I do my best to never miss a chance to use the word ‘annals’ when it’s applicable). This latest poster is just fantastic. Seriously amazing work that no doubt took a true commitment to create. You can pick one up in either silver or gold here.
Both Seb Lester and Electrik Sheep have gotten in touch with me about Lester’s upcoming show at the Electrik Sheep gallery. As opposed to me butchering the description from there, you can see a video of the color-changing ink used for one of the posters above and get all the details about Lester and the show below.
“Electrik Sheep Gallery Presents… Seb Lester
Electrik Sheep is proud to be hosting Seb Lester’s first solo show of exclusive prints and originals.
The Electrik Sheep Gallery, Newcastle will be showing a full body of work from Seb Lester this August including a number of new limited edition prints and originals exclusive to Electrik Sheep. These will complement a selection of his well known back catalogue of work which documents his recent foray into the world of art.
Seb is “passionate about letterforms” which form the basis for his pieces. He brings letters to life with his innovative approach and bold sense of humour. Often drawing on racy subject matter and a dazzling array of lettering styles he manages to produce thoroughly modern work that would look as good on the wall of a New York loft apartment as it would in an English country house.
Seb was trained at the renowned Central Saint Martins School of art and is internationally known for his typeface designs and illustrations which have been used by many of the world’s biggest companies and publications including Intel, The New York Times, The Sunday Times, Penguin, Faber & Faber and GQ Magazine.
Following on from other exclusive solo shows from Faile, Eelus, Eine to name a few the show will open on August 6th at 6pm with one of Electrik Sheep’s infamous street parties and an after party at the Forth Hotel. All pieces will also be released online at the same time for those of you unable to make the trip.”

Keep Calm Gallery emailed this morning to inform me of some new prints they have in stock featuring the typographical stylings of Seb Lester. They are really beautiful prints, and if I wasn’t broke I would definitely pick one up myself. One of the prints is really large and I am sure it is beautiful in person. Stunning typography work.

12/16 HITCHENS DIES Outspoken author and pundit Christopher Hitchens passed away yesterday at the age of 62 after succombing to a long battle with cancer. His honest and bravado opinion that rarely favored one side versus the other but was instead often a cry for ‘reason’ will be missed.
