Gemma O'Brien

I'm an Australian artist specialising in lettering, illustration and typography. Over the past 10 years, I've taken my passion for typography and built a flourishing career around drawing letters. My bold type, expressive calligraphy and detailed illustration can be seen in advertising campaigns, editorial publications and large-scale murals in galleries and interiors around the world. A number of my projects have received the Award of Typographic Excellence from the New York Type Directors Club, in 2015 I was recognised as an ADC Young Gun and in 2016, named one of PRINT Magazine’s New Visual Artists: 15 under 30. I have collaborated with numerous global brands and publications including Apple, Adobe, The New York Times, L'Oréal, Entertainment Weekly and Playboy Magazine. Beyond my commercial work, I'm a regular speaker at international conferences and I host hand-lettering workshops at design schools, agencies and events.
