Hi! My name is Mel Cerri and I'm a lettering artist based in São Paulo, Brazil.
I’ve always been drawn to everything artsy from a young age: loved drawing, writing girly decorated letters for my friends and was seriously into art classes in school. By the time I had to choose what to do in college, I knew I wanted to follow that artistic tendency.
I graduated from college in December 2008 and have been working as a graphic designer since. In the end of 2014 I decided to dive deeper in my love of letters and specialize as a lettering artist.
Figuring out what I loved doing was not easy, but as I searched for meaning, I came across a quote from Jessica Hische that said: “The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life”. That made me look into some old notebooks and folders that were full of my best “procrastiwork”. I realized that during all this time I had been drawing funky letters, just for fun! :)
Lettering is my passion and what you see on this website is the collection of my most recent work, mixing some client work, personal projects and work I did for friends <3. I'm on a mission to make the world brighter, bolder and way more fun!
I hope you enjoy the work I have here and feel free to write me with questions, comments or just to say hi.
Thanks for visiting :)
