My name is Tara Johnston and I am a lettering artist and designer born and raised in Texas and currently living in the beautiful city of Austin.
After graduating from the University of North Texas with a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts, I worked for several years as an in-house lettering artist with a premier wedding company in Austin. I designed a line of custom hand-lettered wedding decor that included statement cake toppers, table numbers, large scale banners, and table signs. The variety of custom projects that crossed my desk fueled my passion for letters even more and eventually, I decided it was time to launch my own lettering, illustration, and design business.
I now focus on creating custom lettering pieces for businesses big & small. My projects range from indoor & outdoor murals, chalkboards, t-shirt graphics, editorial work, logos, social media illustrations & more. The possibilities are endless!
Over the years, my work has been featured on Goodtype, The Daily Type, The Design Tip, Type Matters, Ladies Who Paint, Women of Illustration, 50 Words on Grey, Wedding Chicks, and Style Me Pretty.
