Custom Hand-Lettered Design

TEES, MUGS + MERCH

Creating dazzling designs for self-expression

With extensive experience in licensing my art to manufacturers of retail products, and selling my own line of goods at retail for over 15 years and wholesale for over 5, I know how to create irresistible, expressive hand-lettered designs that are both popular at retail and that resonate meaningfully with human beings.

Choose your Style

My designs typically fall into one of these three categories:

WORD WALL

Lots of detailed words within a larger shape • Fewer illustrated elements

Good for:
Designs that incorporate a lot of words

STORYBOOK

Words and art about 50/50 • Illustrated elements woven throughout

Good for:
Visually immersive sayings/quotes

ICONIC

Words are the center focus • Illustrated elements border and/or are integrated into the word design

Good for:
Iconic, succinct sayings with impact
