Hey there,

I'm Anna Leigh Richards! Hand lettering, creative problem solving, and an ability to adapt to my surroundings are some of my strong suits. I have a burning  passion for all things hand-made and how they translate into print design. I feel like graphic design is a way to incorporate all of the different mediums that I love and integrate them into my designs. To me, the viewer should be able to see the artist's marks that they leave on their work.
