Welcome to The Hand Studio
I'm Elaine, a hand letterer and illustrator based in Bath, UK. I love spending my time capturing your ideas and bringing them to life in bespoke illustrations, logos and branding elements. Collaborating closely with individuals and small brands, I work to produce a beautifully tailored visual representation of a vision. My hope is to provide design that speaks of excellence, longevity, and truthfulness; design that can see you thrive.

MY BRANDING PROCESS
I always start my process with clients by intimately getting to know their business and brand goals. I send out an in-depth questionnaire, collaborate on an inspiration Pinterest board, and set up a 1:1 phone chat. From that information I create a brand strategy document that outlines your business and design goals.
Once we have our strategy in place the design process begins. I always start with an intense week of sketching and conceptualizing. I then present 3 logo directions for the first round. We collaborate on 2 more rounds of revisions before finalizing. Your detailed feedback is crucial and appreciated.
Once the logo has been finalized I will create a brand style guide and design the rest of your requested collateral. When our project has come to a close, I will send over a folder of all your final files. I am happy to then suggest web designers, copy editors, and other consultants that will help bring your business to life.
It's time to materialise your vision
