The Proverbs Project by Michael Masinga

Earlier this year we did an article on 20 magnificent examples of typography (view here) and at number 18 on the list was Proverbs 10:13 by Michael Masinga. I liked his project so much I thought it should get a feature. So June Artist of the Month goes to Michael Masinga for The Proverbs Project.

For those of you who don’t know, Proverbs is a book in the bible filled with old proverbs that provides insight on life and the way one should behave and act to live a good life. You can follow Michael on Behance, Twitter, and Facebook.
