About me
Hi hello ! My name is Bella and I’m a designer, illustrator, and calligrapher who specialises in art direction and typography. I work in a holistic and thoughtful manner — research, strategy and development are just as important as the final outcome. My work is an amalgamation of analogue and digital mediums and, with a strong eye for detail and colour, I am able to translate intentions into visual storytelling.
