Hi there! I’m Amanda, the creator and founder of Amanda Reid Designs, specializing in providing calligraphy services for weddings, events, workshops, and live calligraphy for brands and businesses. I have been painting and creating for over 10 years, but fell in love with calligraphy and lettering about 5 years ago after taking a few classes to DIY my own wedding! It was a love at first sight kind of thing.
Over the years I have developed my own fun and flirty style of modern calligraphy using traditional ink and nib, brush pens, fauxligraphy, and even watercolor. I love finding unique surfaces to letter on for my clients, including mirrors, acrylic signs, wood signs, fabric banners, glass, and even jean and/or leather jackets! Calligraphy and lettering has really proven to be such a creative outlet for me and love being able to share that with others. And you better believe I'll be sharing my favorite tips and tricks that I have learned over the years with YOU in our Sip & Script workshops!
I have been in Austin, TX since 2015, where I now operate my home studio and work part time as a physical therapist. Other than calligraphy here are a few other things that I love: my sweet husband, a really good taco, really good BBQ, watching the office, watching the Bachelor/ette, singing and dancing at the same time, meeting other creatives, and exploring Austin with friends!
To stay up to date with what I'm up to, you can follow me on Instagram @amandareiddesigns or check out my website www.amandareiddesigns.com . If you’re in the Austin area, I’d love to meet you at one of workshops!
