I've admired Laura's style and captivating use of font and color for the past year and I'm honored to feature her on my blog :) As you look through her pictures and work, I think you'll fall in love and discover how special and talented Laura is! xo, LA
Hey there! This isLauraBelle and I'm a freelance designer and maker, living and working in lovely Minneapolis. Here's a little collection of things I love.
I worked in the advertising/design biz for a few years in Chicago. It was alright but it wasn't for me so I moved back to Minnesota and opened up two shops, OhHi and Locality.
OhHi is full of colorful typographic stitched pieces. I love bringing together a modern aesthetic with such a traditional technique. Lately, I've been making a lot of custom name stitches for the upcoming holidays. I'm planning some fun changes for OhHi in 2011 so stay tuned!
Locality, my other type-based shop, focuses on larger display pieces for your home. All of my paintings are hand-lettered using words, phrases, dates and names from clients to create a totally unique custom painting. This is probably still my favorite thing to work on because I'm able to learn so much about the people and the important stories in their lives. Along with large hand-painted canvases that can go up to 36x48", I also offer smaller digital canvas prints.
Since Freckled Nest readers are the best (seriously, you guys are awesome!) I'd love to giveaway a 4x4 ampersand stitch
