View Bio

Bernard Maisner is the "Zelig" of hand lettering. His unique ability to letter in any style and media has made him the top hand letter in the country. He began his business in 1977 after graduating from the Cooper Union College of Art in New York City with awards in calligraphy and painting. His work is commissioned for print and other media by major national advertising agencies, as well as by record, television, publishing, corporate, fashion, and communications companies. His range spans the ages from "monk" to "punk," from medieval gold illuminated manuscripts and Renaissance calligraphy to wild and crazy avant garde styles to graffiti. Bernard Maisner gives the words that you need lettered a distinct voice and personality. Maisner can always find the best solution for any project. He offers personal service and can accommodate any schedule and rush deadline. Maisner is also a hand model and member of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), specializing in writing live on camera for television commercials ("Actifed," "McDonalds," "Advil," "Micatin") and motion pictures ("The Age of Innocence").
