Foreign travel can be a wonderful experience – visiting the iconic and the hidden gems which make up a country’s personality lead to some of the best experiences and insights.

Glasgow-based illustrator and designer Jack Daly loves illustration, typography and travel, and has united these passions together for his latest project; Wanderlust Alphabet.

Slicing together graphics of architecture, sport, food and humanity, Jack encapsulates a sense of adventure and genuine appreciation for each city. 


The letters take on a lighter tone compared with some of his other recent work.

Jack hasn’t shied away from creating graphic design narratives on recent controversial headlines, such as comparisons of Donald Trump to the Antichrist and the EU referendum.
