I'm Laura, a graphic designer and calligrapher, a Pennsylvania native, and Philadelphia resident.
I love my puppy Todd, plants, and flowers. I don't love when my puppy Todd systematically eats all of my plants and flowers (rest in peace Zinnias, Monstera and Heucherella.) I don't love horror movies, but I do love my husband who works in an E.R. - which is basically an ongoing horror movie. I love PokemonGo but I don't love admitting it.
I began practicing calligraphy and hand lettering as a hobby but didn't take long to fall completely in love with it. Pretty soon my downtime was spent meticulously crafting words with pen and ink in our tiny 800 square foot apartment and our walls were papered with quotes, verses and reminders.
I started Marigold & Aster as a way to create custom calligraphed pieces and projects. I make each piece by hand, so it's completely original and personal — designed and lettered with intimacy and elegance that a printer can't replicate.
What about you? Have a quote that you cling to? A song that moves you? Need place cards, signs, or other special touches for a wedding? I would love to hear from you!
Do you have a design project or a custom hand lettering order? I'd love to talk to you about it!
