The way I would approach this is as follows using a BMesh build (either grab one from Graphicall or wait for release 2.63):
Chose a font that maches your the most closely. You might want to go looking on the web for free fonts. Then add the Texte (Add->Text). Finally you can convert the Text object into a mesh object, that you can then edit.

I would go the route of using curves to model these as close as possible first, then convert to mesh later after you work out if you will be extruding letters or whatever. Since there is such an organic feel too this, it depends on how closely you plan on following your design.

Another way of doing it would ofcourse be to create the actual font, I’m pretty sure there’s a free tool for that on the web.
Fonts are useully made by using vector shapes for each letter. After doing that you could add the font to your blender project folder and just type the text object, extrude it, and you’d be done.

Mind you that extruding a text often results in a pretty bloated mesh.
