Hi - I'm Mikaela, the designer behind Typeset Creative.
I'm also a fur mom to Milo and Shrew, mom to two-year-old Arden, wife to Mat, and perpetual hobbyist, busybody, acreage-dwelling, Birkenstock-wearing Aquarius...but I digress.
Obtaining my Bachelor of Design in 2013 was just the starting point of my design journey. Since then, I've gained valuable life experiences and put in the hard work - from working in a sign shop, to a senior design position in a marketing agency. These experiences all led me to start Typeset Creative in 2018, where you can witness the culmination of my skills and passion.
With extensive experience in visual identity, pattern drafting, illustration, and printmaking, I have always fostered a love for the analytical side of bringing ideas to life. All that to say, I'm your gal to help turn *insert your wildest idea here* into something tangible.
I view my role as a stationer similar to that of a commissioned artist. Each design crafted here includes many hand-drawn illustrations, paintings, and hand-lettered elements. Through my signature style, I meticulously embrace colour while balancing refinement with artistic whimsy. The result? Magical stationery possessing a true abundance of character and timeless appeal.
