My calligraphic version of Burgues font has been so popular! I think it was a nice choice for these handmade tags by the bride.

These flowers! The most amazing florals by Joey at Hill and Oak. This was for a dear friend's 60th birthday brunch. Lovely setting and fantastic food at Gracias Madre.

It was so nice to do these cards. The Caspari cards are so pretty, with the holly popping up when they're tented. The style of writing the client chose was perfect, too.

I did these placecards for a Louis Vuitton event.
The font is called Burgues. It's one of my favorites!

Loved addressing with white on this deep chocolate brown envelope.
There's freedom in doing calligraphy that is stylized and modern!

I loved doing these navy placecards with white ink. And the style, my version of Burgues font, was a good choice for this corporate event for Beautycounter.
These placecards were for a small, intimate wedding. Always fun to do a casual, contemporary style of lettering.

Just a peek at some of my addressing style options. Please take a look at the envelope sample page. You can even show me what you love and I can do my Lisa version of that style!

This sweet little card is done by letterpress in coral ink and the stars are gold foil stamped. It just makes me smile.
Current trend I'm noticing is tags for placecards. Kraft is definitely the most popular. I think it's a pretty sweet idea and they can be tied to a multitude of party favors.

I hand lettered this for Joey at Hill and Oak Florals. I then scanned it, did the layout on the computer and emailed it to him to print the signs. His arrangements are beautiful!

This is one of the cards I created for a Flourish Forum envelope exchange. It's an exchange with calligraphers from around the world. Can't wait to see what I receive!

I hand lettered these oversized black cards in gold ink. The style is a more modern take on pointed pen calligraphy. The cards should look nice tucked into napkins at each guest's place setting.
Tova Glenn, of Brighten My Day in Atlanta, designed this holiday card for the Ritz-Carlton in Georgia. I had the pleasure of working with her to incorporate my calligraphy. This unique, circular card is deep eggplant with copper foil stamped lettering and a beveled copper edge.
I recently had the opportunity to visit a plantation while I was on vacation in New Orleans. Whitney plantation is an historic landmark built by African Slaves. The Plantation pays homage to all the slaves that were there and elsewhere in the U.S.South. This photo is of an original slave quarter from the 1700's. and the amazing clay sculpture was done by Woodrow Nash. Nash did many sculptures of the slave children on the plantation.

I just finished this menu for a client giving a small dinner to introduce her new business, Hunt & Gather. All the lettering is done with a brush. The menu sounds delicious!

A very general little map for a client illustrating the sights for her wedding and events. Some landmarks on Oahu as well.

I was asked recently to hand letter 15 menus for a private dinner in San Francisco. Navy on white is always a great classic, clean combination.

A dear friend is moving from L.A. to South Carolina. This is the envelope I created for her card. Using a pentel cartridge brush and rubber stamp for the image behind her name.

Simple, classic, beautifully designed birth announcement by Sugar Paper. I love the pop of white addressing on navy.

Just got my new cards that I designed and had printed by Sugar Paper. Doing something simple works really well with letterpress printing because the texture it creates adds an interesting element.

Here are two options I offered the client for her website heading. One of the goals was to have the lettering vary in shades of grey. It's subtle but it worked. The bottom more whimsical and I think the top one more sophisticated. Sarah chose the top one which I think works well with her style.

I recently worked on an addressing job for a client of Bliss and Bone, a company designing custom stationery and invitations, providing graphic design for print and the web. This one was a challenge! The boxes were 6 x 9 x 1, white ink, two different styles, with the script (Monte Carlo Pro) extra large and all done on an angle. Thankfully they came out nice and the customer was happy with them.

This is the first time I've used the lettering style from the Sugar Paper calendar for envelope addressing. When I did the lettering for the calendar, I had to draw the letters and build them up. Because the size of the writing on the envelope is so much smaller, I was able to use pointed pen calligraphy for the job without having to draw the letters.
