The Versatile Typographic Skills of Will Dove

The skill of competent versatility is a hard one to achieve and the design process plays a huge part in achieving it. Designers need to be willing to put in the time to explore the process, to try new things and step out of comfort zones. Here at Nicework, we appreciate the process just as much as the end product.


Will Dove is a graphic designer and illustrator from Washington D. C. You can tell just by glancing at his portfolio that this is a designer who appreciates the exploration of the process. From logo design to illustrated art work to typographic layouts, Will is on top of his game and its plain to see that finding new and completely different approaches is one of the main reasons of how he gets there. This post will focus solely on his typographic diversity but if you would like to see the rest of his portfolio you can just click on this link here.








Great design is crafted, the more time you spend on the journey the better your final product will be. This is the magical powers of “the process”.

Graphic Inadequacy: The feeling I get when I comes across a hand crafted logotype or typographic treatment in a two second gif on the Internet. This is a real thing and after trying and crying, I have come to the conclusion that my hands were not made for creating amazingly slick and perfectly crafted hand lettering – just yet!

These are a few designers who are achieving greatness with a few flicks of the wrist.
