Have you ever needed to break bad news but were lost about how to do it? Seb Lester – a graphic designer based in the UK – has given us some really elegant and offensive solutions to this problem. If you’ve ever needed to tell someone they’re a prat but wanted to maintain an air of class, you can turn to these gorgeous Handcrafted Calligraphy pieces to get your point across.

Seb’s other pieces are also quite gorgeous, and totally worth taking a look at. Seb has done a number of typography pieces for big name companies such as Apple, Nasa, Nike and Intel. He also does videos of his calligraphy on his Instagram. You can check out his Behance and his website to see more of his stuff.

We found this series in particular super hilarious! Here’s some off the pieces from the series:
