About Katie Johnson

I'm a letterer born and currently living in Austin, Texas. After graduating in 2013 from The University of North Texas with a BFA in Communication Design, I worked for several years as an art director at Greatest Common Factory. In 2017, I opened my own freelance lettering studio and paper goods shop.

While I love creating any kind of design work that features ornaments, filigree, and details galore, lettering is the niche that speaks to me the most. The best part about lettering is that it sits at the intersection of verbal and visual communication which creates so many unique opportunities for expression.

I’m constantly inspired by historical periods such as Art Nouveau and enjoy every opportunity to infuse some of the past into modern lettering.
