“Annihilation of Humanity”: The Superb Metal Bands Logo Design by Irina Voland

Do you like heavy metal as much as I do? If your answer is yes, then you’ll be impressed with these beautiful logos created by Irina Voland. Exellent lettering!

According to an artist: “My friends used to call me ‘Mods’. Prefix ‘Mod-‘ stuck to me because I like to modify, customize everything. The other bit is because the Moon is the black soul of night, i enjoy silence and stillness of the night. The Moon is near the Earth, but still far away – I can relate to that.”

“I’ve always been looking for something special – dark, mystic, melancholic, even before I’ve got into art and subcultures. So i’ve decided to do my own thing, that connects my passion for music with drawing as my job.

I’m into graphic arts since 2004, after i quit working with PC hardware in my youth. Earlier years I used to work with german, swedish, british and american studios to get expericence and reliable name, very few of them were about dark design, most jobs were fashion and entertainment related. Though i don’t regret doing it because it gave me the experience i needed. Nowdays i prefer to have more freedom rather than being tied up with contracts. I manually draw lettering art like name tattoos, band or artist logos, personal emblems and monograms.

I want to make artworks more interesting, not like soulless “neutral style” corporate designs. I prefer more artistic, atmospheric designs. I like giving soul to my lettering art, making it speak, tell a story maybe.”

“Music is my passion, basically avantgarde and progressive Black Metal, Doom, Dark Ambient, Prog/Alternative Rock. The older i become the more genres i embrace, i catch myself listening to lots of Blues Rock and Darkjazz lately. My favourite bands are Anathema, Agrypnie, Paradise Lost, VAST, Nocte Obducta, Khold, Diary of Dreams, Behemoth, Nyktalgia, Satyricon, Desiderii Marginis, Hypnogaja, Black Lab, Anorexia Nervosa, Nortt, Antimatter, Godsmack, Shinedown, Five Finger Death Punch. Music and Art is my lifestyle, the blood in my veins, the air i breathe.”

The Art of Hand-Lettering with Stefan Kunz

Hand lettering has become an increasingly popular art form and these creative lettering styles are almost everywhere – whether it’s the logo of your favorite coffee shop, burger restaurants’ chalkboards, the stationery or adverts and wall art, to name just a few.

Lettering is still often confused with calligraphy, which is definitely where hand-lettering originated from; the art of lettering, however, is essentially drawing all kinds of letters, beautifully rearrange typography broken down into its shapes, embellishments and all kinds of different textures, depending on which materials are being used. It has become an independent art form and every piece of lettering is an expression of emotions, often with a deeper meaning — delivering happiness and joy with a touch of nostalgia.
