Nicolai Sclater, also known as Ornamental Conifer, is a sign painter from East London, currently residing in California. Originally, he was a graphic designer; however, when he saw a niche demand for lettering he began to specialize and hone his skills at sign painting.
His passion stems from his childhood desire to customize his belongings and add his own personal style to the things he owned. This sense of personal style is still very apparent in his work today. He blends motorcycle culture, graffiti undertones, classic lettering and positive energy into one truly unique style. Unlike many letterers he tends to keep his typeface pretty uniform, and as a result his work has an immediately recognizable element.
What makes Sclater so unique is he places extreme value on the power of words. For him the message should be so impactful that the letters used to present it are complementary and only add value to that original message. The importance of the art stems from the story that the letters are telling.
