Envelopes just addressed in Rook style for a client of Sugar Paper. Simple black on grey.
I've always enjoyed writing this style.

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

Christmas Holly Placecards
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.

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

Classic, Elegant Placecards
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.

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 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!

New Business Card!
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.
