From graphic designer to lettering artist
Hi I’m Rae, the artist behind Braw Lettering
I’ve always be the artistic type and have always experimented with painting, sketching, photography, illustration and design. To be honest, I can’t imagine life without doing something creative. After college, I landed my first graphic design job making things look cool, creative and attention grabbing, from small punchy adverts to busy, product packed catalogues.
A decade later, I took the risk of setting up my own freelance design business but started to feel that I needed a new challenge – something completely and utterly new. At the end of 2018, I hung up by Pantone books and decided to specialise in lettering and font design. Admittedly, it’s been a huge learning curve but well worth it!
Over time, Braw Lettering will grow with useful, creative posts and goodies to help assist you into exploring the exciting world of lettering and font design.

I am lucky! I get to live in the country with speculator scenery, a vibrant culture and a ton of history! In this crazy world, it’s now more important than ever to celebrate what a creative and inspirational country Scotland is. That’s why I decided that it’d be fun to theme my lettering and font designs around Scottish places, phrases and culture. We may also learn some Gaelic together!
