Dan Forster


“I’m based in Leeds UK, but work internationally. My formal training was a HND in Design Communications, but my ultimate eduction (and influence) came with growing up around the work of my late father—lettering artist Tony Forster. 

I worked in Graphic Design before specialising in Custom Lettering and Illustration. Letters are endlessly fascinating to me. There’s so many possibilities and I’m always looking to try something new, a different way to be expressive through the familiarity of letterforms. It’s an adventure and a challenge I relish. 

For me, detail is crucial. A beautiful piece of lettering is essentially a cumulation of many well crafted details. I’ve always found that if you pay attention to these the rest will fall into place.”
