When I see British designer and calligraphist Seb Lester work I picture myself sitting quietly next to him just watching him do his job. I'm sure calligraphy is a very relaxing thing to do, this video—where he skillfully recreates famous logos by hand—proves that it's also a mesmerizing thing to watch.

The first time I've learned about Seb Lester it was in this captivating short documentary about him released a few years ago. Prepare to be hypnotized by his voice and mean skills:

Seb Lester is a designer and artist based in the UK. He has developed typefaces and type illustrations for some of the world's biggest companies, publications and events, including the likes of NASA, Apple, Nike, Intel, The New York Times.
