Dream job: Hand-letterer


In Issue 12's 'When I Grow Up', Carla Hackett talks about creating her own dream job and finding the confidence to get her skills paying the bills. Now you can check out her lettering goodness at the freshly-launched foxglovelettering.com. Carla is currently working on a range of hand-lettered greeting cards, due out in November (and fiancĂ©es out there will be glad to know that Carla loves working on bespoke invitations and chalkboard wedding signage too!) 

Here are more photos from the shoot by Sass Cocker (Carla and Sass are both based at Melbourne's Little Gold Studios).
