Studio Chavelli

Tailor-Made Lettering Art

Hand-lettering and handwriting isn’t just timeless and elegant. It’s a distinct way to show your audience how much you care in this digital world.

I’m a devout student of age-old calligraphy and love applying them to modern uses, highlighting the splendor of the written word. As both a graphic designer and calligrapher, I bring an added visual sensitivity and technical know-how to my lettering work. Every piece I create is an original, one-of-a-kind composition designed just for you.

Express the beauty of your message with the beauty of the letters themselves


“Chavelli is the best. Nothing else to say.”

Bespoke Commissions

The ultimate luxury is the creation of a tailor-made keepsake. Create a piece for framing, a hand-bound book, or a delightful objet d’art! I don’t simply write on objects—I design, craft and compose unique pieces perfectly suited to your vision.

“I worked with Chavelli for two completely custom citations to commend trustees for a long history of service. The final pieces exceeded our expectations (and the trustees when they received them were beyond words—it was very special). The process and experience of working together was incredibly smooth from the first email. Chavelli was able to get a real grasp of the personality of our group (which was quite traditional), and brought her own touch to it as well, in calligraphic style as I knew she would but also historical reference and smart organization of quite lengthy content. I couldn’t recommend her enough!”
