Here’s something you probably didn’t know about yourself: you could sit and watch someone hand-draw famous fonts and logos for hours. We didn’t believe it either until we stumbled upon Seb Lester’s Instagram account, so bear with us. The fact is, the calligrapher himself didn’t even realize what he had created. He’s just drawing, which is what he enjoys doing, but it’s actually a speech-free version of ASMR. Each video is a simple visual that creates an unusually satisfying response, similar to how children like this soft-spoken lady’s YouTube channel or how other people enjoy cyst popping videos. Don’t believe us? Here we go:
For the Game of Thrones title, you are waiting for him to screw up but he doesn’t. He pulls it off.
Same goes for the Lord of the Rings title. Will he screw it up? Ahhhh, must keep watching.

Now, Harry Potter is a challenging one, what with the lightning bolt and all. And yet…
Now, for Star Wars he gets a little sloppy, but it’s no less impressive.

But he’s back in fine form with this tricky The Hobbit font.
Like American Horror story? You’ll love this!

Then Seb gets into his logo period, which began with the iconic Nike swoosh.
And then he started to play with colour for this ESPN logo. And it was good.

You use this every day, so it’s no surprise that Seb nailed it.
It’s no old school adidas logo, but it’ll do just fine.

We’ve falled into this design gap and we are loving it.
Omg, why can’t we stop.

Okay, we made it. And we love that Seb thanks his followers for their love. We love you, too!
Wow, suddenly I have over 400k followers on Instagram. I have to say I am a bit overwhelmed, it’s pretty crazy. Thanks to all the websites and pages who have featured (and credited) me over the last few days. I also want to say a sincere thanks to everyone following me for taking an interest in my work. I really do appreciate it. A video posted by Seb Lester (@seblester) on
