HI, I’M ILANNA.
Which is just like “Alana,” except cooler (insert finger guns here).
I am a graphic designer and self-taught hand lettering artist. I fell in love with design while earning my degree at Rider University and found myself especially drawn to typography, color and layout (read: I’m obsessed with these aspects of design). My style can best be described as clean and cohesive and I keep working until I am proud, until a client or brand has a voice that may not have been there before.
My love of typography eventually evolved into another love for the art of handmade letters. Modern calligraphy and hand lettering captivated me – so much so that I picked up a brush pen, began to teach myself, and never looked back. Hours upon hours of practice later, this “hobby” turned into my go-to activity to destress and a bit of a side hustle. It is also so much fun to incorporate into my designs!
If I’m not designing or lettering at my craft table, 9/10 times you can find me watching Netflix and obsessing over my dachshund, Shorty. I’m also most likely to be wandering the aisles of Michaels and Target with a Starbucks iced coffee in my hand.
I’m a super giggly person who loves candles, a cold glass of Pinot Grigio, puns and pretty things. But most of all, I love being able to create, every single day. So let’s create your next project together! Hit that contact button and let’s get started.
