    Oli Frape is a hand-lettering artist based in London who creates engaging, informal and conversational typographic works. His work utilises a wide range of hand-made typographic treatments that he has developed over time allowing him to express other people’s words in interesting ways.

    His lettering works are always hand-drawn and celebrate the imperfections and textures of marks made in non-digital ways. Oli has worked on a wide selection of projects with a broad and diverse list of clients including Penguin Random House, The Guardian, O2, Nationwide, Hovis, Estee Lauder and Deloitte.
