Teddy Bear - The Director of Cute

Teddy Bear - The Director of Cute


I am a hand lettering artist and illustrator with an obsession with cold brew located in Chicago, where I work out of my studio with my puppy, Teddy, the Director of Cute (for which is does a very heckin’ good job). I have been working professionally since 2010 and have had the pleasure of working with clients such as Samsung, Publix, Adobe, Seventeen Magazine, Microsoft, and many many others. I am also one of the authors of Creative Lettering & Beyond from Walter Foster Publishing.

I am most active on Twitter and Instagram, as well as on my main side project, We Need to Talk.
