Megan Riera is one of our fantastic Modern Calligraphers. She has a gorgeous fluid and contemporary lettering style that lends itself perfectly to tons of different projects. Megan started off in design for moving image, where she worked designing and illustrating for TV, feature film and animation...
The press team at Marks and Spencer asked us to personalise mini Christmas baubles, in the form of sweet little picture frames, for their guests to take away them. Megan adorned each bauble with a Christmassy phrase and the guests's initials, with a choice of papers and ink colours.
Emma Block is a fantastic illustrator and regularly commissioned for her illustrations and brush lettering. Her work is inspired by the people she meets in her everyday life, old photos, vintage clothes, old films, travel, 1950s illustration, 1930s jazz and sausage dogs.
One of our favourite, and more unusual projects, Emma spent a day in Selfridges mens shoe department inking customers' initials onto the bottom of beautiful leather Grenson shoes. The image shows some of Emma's test pieces. It took a while to source the right ink and materials, but we do love a challenge, and we were really pleased with the results!

London School of Economics asked us to write on these reclaimed floor tiles, which they turned into trophies for an internal awards event. Megan spent time trialling out different inks on the stone surface, and unfortunately it wasn't suitable for pen and ink, so we used a silvery white ink pen instead.
