An Interview with Master Calligrapher Seb Lester

Calligrapher and type designer Sebastian “Seb” Lester is one of my favourite people to follow on Instagram (@seblester). The hand drawn calligraphy videos that he creates are so satisfying to watch that I find myself returning to them time and time again. It’s no wonder he’s amassed a following of over 1.2 million followers on his various social channels.

I asked Seb, of all the videos he’s made so far, which words have been the most fun to draw. The video above is a compilation of his favourites. A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to ask him a bit more about his work as a sort of mini interview to accompany the video. You can read it in its entirety, a view some more videos, below.
