Hello, I'm Claire! Combining hand lettering and graphic design, I create custom logos, designs, branding packages, editorial designs, and much, much more. I’ve worked for an advertising agency, a golf marketing company, an architecture and interior design firm, and numerous freelance clients. Working for so many different types of people has allowed me to build an in-depth knowledge of what it takes to develop a project from just an inkling of an idea into a full-fledged branding package or beautiful print collateral.
My passion is hand lettering. I know it sounds trendy, but it's something I've been doing since I was trying to pay attention to my third grade teacher. I remember writing my name thousands of times, practicing to get the letters to look just right. It has stuck with me, and now I'm fortunate enough to be able to use lettering on a number of projects and collaborations.
I'm originally from Iowa and graduated with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design from Iowa State University. I currently live in Portland, Oregon, with my husband, Chris Kelleher, and 9-year-old cattle dog/Dalmatian mix, Mia. I love collaborating with Chris to create custom artwork. Check out my Instagram to see a few pieces, and his, just because it’s awesome.
