THE HAN'MADE DESIGNS STORY
Hannah A, the Creative behind Han'made Designs
I'm Hannah, from the UK. You'll usually find me with an Apple Pencil in one hand, and a cup of tea in the other! Passionate about lettering, typography and illustration, together I combine my years of experience and love for letterforms, to create end products that sell world-wide and creative content that captivates.
My Journey so far...
My Dad was a traditional sigh writer, so from a young age, I have always been intrigued by letterforms. Combine this with a love of creating, painting and some geeky tech know-how...I soon started to pave away my artistic journey.
Over the years, my formal qualifications lead me to study Fine Art, Graphic Design and Media Studies with a further education of Art & Design (with specialising in Graphic Design/Illustration). At the age of just 21, I decided to listen to my inner calling, and start my freelancing/solo entrepreneur journey.
With only a small amount of savings, I purchased my MacBook, and started to create hand painted wedding stationery, and within a few months of opening an online store, my work was not only heading off around the UK, but was landing in New York too!
Fast forward 5 years in business, and over 12,000 sales to date. I am now ready to help others start their creative journey, showing them all the techniques I have learned and studied along the way.
