You have some pretty cool art (or creative services) and could use some help building your brand and business.

Whether your creative work is your primary income or a side hustle (or maybe it's been shelved for a while as life has gotten in the way), we both know it’s a constant in your life.

If you would consider your creative work your life's work, then this program is for you...

The new creative solution to get artists what they need and want in a way that makes them feel valued and excited to do what they love most.

Let's build up artists' value and invest in a unique way that can have a greater impact.

Let’s talk about who this is really for…

  • Your creative business is currently your full-time gig. You could use a boost in building the brand of your dreams.
  • Your creative business is your most passion-filled side hustle that has the potential to become your primary income. You're ready to speed up the process together.
  • Your creative business has been on the back burner for too long. You're ready to bring it back to the forefront.

Lettering Works Artist Trade Program allows you to leverage your creative artwork and services to get the branding and business support you need while drastically decreasing the necessary cash investment.

We are ready to offer...

  • Educational Resources (including mini courses on branding, passion projects and lettering)

  • Consulting Sessions
  • Logo Design + Branding Services

What our clients have to say...

“Chelsie is an artist for artists. She was commissioned to design our brand, taking into account everything we are striving to achieve, and she delivered exactly what we were looking for. Working with her was an absolute joy. If you are a fellow artist who is looking to define or redefine your brand, I PROMISE you will be greatly rewarded." - Joe Liolos, owner of Doughnut Gallery

"Because we can't do it all, nor should we. Having an outside, creative brain take all of our ideas and intentions and make them into something WAY better than anything we thought of is beyond priceless.” - Mel McSherry, host of More Than Just Podcast

Branding is one of the most important marketing tools and can easily kill your business if done improperly, and there's no one I'd trust more with that responsibility than Chelsie at Lettering Works.” - Zandra, artist + owner of Zandra Illustration

“Chelsie was the perfect person to help build my brand and business, and I never could have imagined a better outcome, not to mention getting to work with an overall incredible person and phenomenal designer.” - Bailey, artist + owner of CandleTit, LLC

"I’ve been eyeing her work for months, and finally, when the time was right to evolve my branding, I was stoked that she accepted me as a part of her bookings.” - Cee Ng, CEO of Live Learn Dream
