[fade]MY NAME IS COLIN TIERNEY, AND I enjoy MAKING UNIQUE LETTERFORMS THROUGH the art of writing & drawing.
I run Tierney Studio, a Baltimore based design studio specializing in hand lettering, calligraphy and branding. What excites me the most is helping people grow whether it's an aspiring artist, fellow designer or business owner.[/fade]
Several years ago, I branched off on my own and dove into the world of freelance. I loved the idea of being able to help businesses thrive by developing a face for their company. I felt a great deal of accomplishment by building a foundation for my clients through logos design.
During this time I realized how much I cared for typography and found myself wanting the letters to do something visually different to better align with the corresponding mark or illustration. I often stripped type down to its bones so that I could understand their intention and build off of the letters by adding different elements.
It wasn't too long before I picked up my first brush pen and starting practicing calligraphy every day.
