My Handlettering

I started my handlettering experiment about two years ago. It started with a friend remarking that my handwriting was gorgeous and since I have always admired handlettering kind of illustrations, I gave it a try out of curiosity. It was for fun at the start, knowing that I have not found my style yet but until this autumn – I got commissioned to design a wedding stationery and 1st birthday party invitation because the clients loved my handlettering “portfolio” I occasionally posted on my Instagram. When they got in touch asking me to use my awesome handlettering skills to design their invitations, I was terrified but being brilliant at giving myself a pep talk, I said yes with no regrets. I am sharing a selection of handlettering I did in 2015, including the commissioned ones. I hope you like them!

Save The Date invitation for a client – I am still working on the rest of the wedding stationery, which is exciting!

Birthday Invitation

I designed a rather cute 1st birthday party invitation and to my delight, the client loved it. I might be able to share the whole look later this year.


I made this mini print to include my orders for you to, hopefully, put up on your walls because you know, you are awesome!

As I enjoy handlettering and aspire to improve – I will definitely continue this year and hopefully I will get to design more invitations.

Show me yours if you handletter like me!

    I think your handwriting is awesome too! You have a distinct style that definitely fits in nicely with stationery :)

    Lovely! I have terrible handwriting but I have always wanted to do hand lettering. It was something I wanted to practice last year – just buying a book of fonts and things and practicing that way (tracing and then free hand) but I never got around to it. Perhaps this year :)

      Thank you so much! Yes, I agree – that certain handlettering style that many people is aiming for is lovely but just not for me. I like to keep it natural as much as possible!
