About

I design typefaces and custom lettering from my little apartment in Vancouver BC.

In 2013, I received a very official-looking document from Emily Carr University of Art + Design that says I’m a communication designer. After working in a design studio for a couple years I fell deeply in love with type & letters and discovered that “type designer” was a real profession that people could do.

Now, most of my time is spent working on my retail typefaces, or custom typefaces and lettering for brands and organizations. I work both directly with clients or with art directors to help add some typographic expertise to their projects.

The rest of my time is spent being the coolest mum I can manage for my two energetic sons, playing Animal Crossing, watching anime, listening to Critical Role, and drinking tea – earl grey, hot.

I also believe in teaching and sharing knowledge so I try to speak and write as much as possible about the things I’ve learned. If you’re in the Vancouver area and want to connect with more typography-obsessed folks, I help run a local speaker series called Type Brigade (on pause right now due to COVID-19, but we’ll be back!)
