Will Letter for Lunch | Lauren Hom

  • Lauren Hom - Will Letter For Lunch is a personal project born out of Lauren's love for lettering and food. The idea is simple: She will go around New York City and letter restaurant signs and menus in exchange for the exact food items lettered and written out. The result? Beautiful signage for restruants and businesses and a full belly for Lauren! (Client: Personal, Year: 2014-Ongoing)
