Annica Lydenberg is a Brooklyn-based designer, illustrator and screen printer with a deep obsession with type as art. Her aim to is to create work that will make people smile.
As a graphic designer she has been paying close attention to typography for many years focusing now on treating letters and words as art in various mediums. Each word she draws is treated as image in and of itself rather than a word rendered in a particular font. She works with screen printing, painting and pen and ink, pulling stylistic influence from an ever growing photographic library of found type.
Her inspiration comes from street artists including Margaret Killagen, Faile, and ESPO and more traditional artists such as Jenny Holzer and Rauschenberg. She also is influenced by the work of sign painters and tattoo artists with their great attention to type as both communication and form.
