  • Ever wondered if there is a #whiteink alternative to Dr Ph Martin's #bleedproof white for pointed pen? I've dusted off some of the old (and newer) inks from the bottom drawer to see what's worth a run. Take a look over on the blog (link in bio). .

While most of my work is hand lettered, I love the chance to integrate my calligraphy in a digitised design. This grey and pink #pinkandgrey invitation suite is for a couple of special girls.

Kate Watson, Calligrapher

Specialising in both traditional and modern scripts, Olive & Reid Studio creates elegant, luxury calligraphy for weddings, personalised events and life’s important moments. I love working with each unique brief to develop a bespoke concept and create something memorable.

I’m a South London calligrapher and lettering artist, previously on the committee of the South London Lettering Association, and have worked with corporate clients including Cartier, Astley Clarke, Ted Baker, Jo Malone, Kikki K, Creme de la Mer and Solicitors Journal.

Mindful, methodical and precise, calligraphy is perfect antidote to the hurried and sometimes harried life swirling around us. A challenging and rewarding art, I love taking the time to focus and create stunning calligraphy to share.
