Black/White: Beautiful Chalkboard Typography

Dana Tanamachi is the creator of some very refined chalk signage. Her works have a classic feel reminiscent of extra-fancy title cards from 1920’s silent films, mixing a healthy dose of typographical styles with strong linear flourishes. Her custom lettered signs have been commissioned by clients such as Google, Adidas, EveryDay with Rachael Ray, Harber Collins UK, West Elm and Rugby Ralph Lauren. See her process video at the bottom of this post, then head to for more of her black and white masterpieces.

For some added entertainment, find the chalk QR codes in some of her pieces. They work!

    Hello Ms. Tanamachi,

    I am interested in purchasing your graphic design chalkboard “The Specials of the Month”. Can you tell me how I can to go about doing this. I’m in love with all of your designs.
