About Love Lettering - Doris Wai
Hello, I’m Doris, the owner and artist behind Love Lettering, a company focused on the art of hand lettering and great ideas of lettering beyond paper. As a graduate of the Ontario College of Art & Design in illustration, what I loved to draw most is letters. Each font, each typeface, each stroke and ligature can tell such a different story and that is what I find fascinating.
For me, the magic happens when the right words, right composition and right surface/item comes together to create something visually new. I can letter on anything, I have been called the Microsoft font catalogue for lettering on things.
Our passion is lettering, the idea that signage can be beautiful and functional and that lettering is communicative art, a chance to make a statement.
My love of lettering has lead me to opportunities that I have never imagined or planned, such as the covers and within the pages of magazines such as Wedluxe, Mingle Magazine, The Bridal Affair, lettering for products/print work with Hallmark, Creative Bag, and Baskits. Logo work with Roxy Earle from The Real Housewives of Toronto, and also lead me to my biggest and most passionate project, my book Extraordinary Hand Lettering. Yearning for sharing more, I have started a YouTube channel called The Lettering Lifestyle, began developing workshops to teach the skill and tricks to lettering beyond paper, and began licensing my lettering and artwork as well. We are currently working on our first art exhibit for the fall of 2019.
Love Lettering will always be defined with my love and the art of lettering.
