This calligraphed alphabet was commissioned by Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine, for use in their Summer 2012 special issue-within-an-issue. I was tasked with creating a custom, ornate, modern calligraphy alphabet. While I created all the lettering by hand using a pointed calligraphy dip pen, I vectorized the final designs. The turnaround was very, very fast — 2 days! — but had a very rewarding outcome.

My calligraphy was used to create DIY projects for brides-to-be, such as table number signs, matchboxes, and monogrammed hang tags. They are still available as printable downloads from the Martha Stewart website.
