Kelly Thorn, letter and designer at Louise Fili Ltd, is one of several wonderfully-talented ladies nominated by Jillian Adel. She also just happens to be one of the competitors in today’s Type Fight, go check out her K!

Kelly’s work finds great application on the usual suspects: greetings cards, wedding invites, inspirational quotes. What I love about her work is that it also translates to high-polish branding systems. The Corbeaux wordmark looks so good as physical signage:

At first glance, I thought this was mostly a typeface that she had typeset, but EVERYTHING is manually lettered. Kelly is hoping to turn this into a typeface soon and is looking for naming ideas.
