Rise & Shine video series, episode 2: Thy Doan

In the second episode of AIGA’s video series we travel to Salt Lake City to visit designer and letterer Thy Doan of Pen and Palates. Learn how working as a sign painter at Whole Foods renewed her passion for meticulous hand-lettering, and watch her use digital tools to paint large-scale typographic murals.
