Welcome to Festoon Lettering and Design. I am Melanie. I am a wife, mom, trained graphic designer and hand lettering fanatic. Armed with butcher paper, micron pens and photoshop skills, I've created everything from vintage hand lettered windows to logos to custom chalkboard signs and love every...single...minute of it. All of my work is done with pride and is created and produced locally in Spokane, Washington. I would absolutely love the opportunity to work with you and make your visions come to life. Whether it is a welcome sign for your wedding or maybe you would just like a little chalkboard for your kitchen counter, I can make that happen for you. I do what I love and I love what I do.
CUSTOM HAND LETTERING
Festoon has created custom individual pieces for all occasions. Lettering on a vintage window to remind those to "Use the doodie spray if necessary" is one of my favorite bathroom signs. I have done small chalk tags for a baby shower to five large scale wall murals for a local credit union. It is a pleasure to work with so many wonderful people giving me creative freedom to represent them.
Lettering with chalk takes me back to my childhood. There is just something about getting messy yet creating something so beautiful.
I am grateful for where it all started for me. I went back to school at the age of 42 and became an "official" graphic designer. I had played around with lettering, scrapbooking and anything that would keep that passion for creativity alive and well in my head but getting that degree made it all real for me. Now I find myself combining hand lettering with logos, print ads, wedding invitations and so much more. The ideas are really endless and combining all of these elements into creating the perfect piece for you is what I absolutely love to do.
