Hey there, friend!
This blog post is extra special because it’s my first! First things first, I’ll introduce myself! I’m Aditi, a graphic designer, hand lettering artist and the girl behind Aditi Designs. I create unique designs for brands, products and people. With the launch of a stationery line in 2017, my mission is to brighten people's day one card at a time! My most recent venture has been hosting hand lettering and cursive workshops all around Oklahoma and in NYC.
I draw inspiration from colors and patterns. I was born and raised in Mumbai, India, and my grandma was a seamstress, so naturally, I was surrounded by colorful fabrics everywhere. Indian fabrics have very intricate patterns and I love the way Indian women mix and match colors and yet look so elegant. Turquoise is my favorite, with gold being a close second.
I also want to share what brought me to lettering…
I participated in the 365 days of type almost 3 years ago, and managed to see it all the way through. For those of you who don’t know, this project involves lettering every day for a whole year. Participating in this project made me realize my passion for lettering. I took calligraphy as a young teen, but practicing lettering again really brought back the love I have with handwriting. I am constantly striving to better my lettering by following amazing hand lettering artists, reading books on the subject and of course, practicing.
Ok, enough about work, here’s what I do when I’m not designing, you can find me listening to podcasts, binging shows on Netflix or playing with my 85 pound Cane Corso and Lab mix called Saul!
Lastly, I just want to thank you for reading this post! <3 Sign up for my newsletter at the bottom of this site for workshop details, freebies and new products. I promise to make it worth your while
