Ruth Rowland Lettering Artist

Welcome to my portfolio! I work as a professional hand lettering artist, calligrapher, mapmaker and illustrator from my studio in London, UK. I enjoy working on a variety of hand lettering projects including titles and logos for books, magazines and albums, handwriting and custom script for advertising, posters and packaging, plus credits and props for tv and film.  As a designer illustrator, I combine my lettering and drawing skills to work on illustrative maps and diagrams, as well as book cover designs, which you can find in their respective folders above. My latest hand lettering and illustration posts can be found at the top of this page or to navigate by subject, just click on the folders in the menu.
