Hooray For Hollywood

I have said it before and I will say it again. I love LA! Getting to work on projects for celebrities, movie studios, producers, and TV shows is so much fun.

Recently, I had the pleasure to put a packet together for Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey. They were looking to have invites made for a housewarming / anniversary party.

Cannot begin to tell you how exciting it was to put these samples together. They were inspired by Mariah's love for white, pink, purple and butterflies.

Mariah already has a personal calligrapher on staff, (crazy, right?) so to have her ask to look at my work, was an honor.

Mariah and Nick ended up going digital for their invites, instead of old school. Hopefully, I will work with them in the future.

But, I was lucky enough to be touched by another star with a job that did go through.

I did a rush job of Fifty pieces of custom stationery for Will and Jada Smith.

They loved it so much. I got hired to do more.

I did a hand calligraphied line of family stationery with "The Smith Family" on the letterhead.

How I got the job you ask? All word of mouth.

I was fortunate enough to do Will’s agent's calligraphy for invitations which then led to this referral.

I had to make many different samples showing off different lettering styles til they found the perfect one.

Hooray for Hollywood!!!
