Based in Chicago, but we travel worldwide.
Chicago native Amanda Paulson is a traditionally trained painter with a BFA from the University of Illinois who discovered her love for lettering after graduating.
In 2009, a few small restaurant chalkboard menu commissions set Amanda's hand lettering career in motion. After recognizing the need for hand drawn typographic art in the restaurant industry and beyond, she opened Amanda Paulson Art Studio, a boutique design studio specializing in custom lettering and illustration for branding, marketing, and editorial use.
In addition to chalk lettering, Amanda loves to paint colorful typographic murals. The bigger the better!
Her creative approach—no matter the medium—is to tell the story. To search for ways to arrest an audience, plant a little bit of desire in their hearts, and invite them to turn the page and learn more about the idea. Ultimately, it’s about creating memorable messages.
In between designing and painting murals, Amanda can be found biking, traveling, and tending her urban garden.
