Meet Oli Frape
Hello, my name is Oli and I'm a member of The Cast.
I'm a lettering artist currently based in east London where I live and work.
I've been lucky enough to work with a wide variety of clients on all sorts of different projects from publishing work for Penguin Random House and Hachette, editorial work for Adweek, The Guardian, and advertising work for brands like Hovis, Nokia and General Mills.
I write chalk boards, I've covered shop windows with lettering. I've even hand-lettered on some people...
Everything starts with pencils and paper and everything remains hand drawn whatever the outcome.
I use different approaches to letterforms and typography to create a partnership of style and tone. My work with clients help them make their messaging appear more friendly and authentic.
In my personal work I like to write my own copy and use it as a device to talk about the world around me, my experiences of being a human alive today, or indeed anything else that makes me feel something.
I'm really all about the words and the language - it's important to me that I'm able, through my work, to express myself both visually and verbally.
