Artist research – Ian Barnard


Ian Barnard is a Christian calligrapher and typographer from the UK.

He started calligraphy a few years ago as a hobby but became successful enough at it to turn it into his way or earning his living. Two years ago he founded a design company called the vintage design co.


His work is mostly just your average calligraphy/typography but often done using Bible verses. He has also released many fonts for adobe illustrator and Photoshop, which are on creative market.

I have chosen to research Ian Barnard because one he is one of my favourite typographers, two his work has more variety than my other favourites therefore can better fit my vintage style choice and three his work has been very influential on my own in both typographic and calligraphic.
