Annlettering is the studio of Ann Chen

I'm a illustrator and muralist with a BFA in Graphic Design from Utah Valley University. After five years of working in the consumer retail industry, I left my graphic design career to pursue freelance illustration full-time. I now focus on murals and commercial lettering out of my studio in Salt Lake City, Utah.

My curiosity for lettering stems from believing in the power of words and its ability to uplift and create meaningful connections with viewers. I use lettering as an engaging medium for sharing stories and ideas. My work is often inspired by daily musings expressed through a colorful and positive lens. I enjoy bending the rules of typography with my hand-drawn letterforms and whimsical linework. My visual language often includes vibrant colors, gritty textures, and playful shapes. I work in a variety of styles ranging from modern monoline, sharp elegant scripts, to retro-inspired forms. When I'm not drawing the alphabet, I'm probably thinking about dinner or failing to impress my two cats.
