Hello! I’m Anne Kostecki, the designer/illustrator/calligrapher behind the blog. I have a passion for stationery, print design, and illustration. This is a place for me to show my latest work: both successes and failures. I want to show my creative process as I learn new and interesting ways to work. I hope to be able to show some tutorials someday too!

I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a degree in Communication Design in 2010. I moved from the Midwest to the East Coast and had many internships and various design positions along the way. I began dreaming of starting my own company long before I actually did, and it took a lot of time, encouragement, and learning before I took the plunge.

I live in Baltimore, Maryland, with my engineer husband, Geran. We love to explore new places, entertain friends, and play football in our spare time. I am currently enrolled in an MBA graduate student program focusing on marketing. Graduate school takes up a lot of my time, but I want to still carve out a little bit for freelance and personal work.
