Having lived in Oklahoma City for several years, the small business ladies there will always have a very special place in my heart! The community in OKC is unlike any other and I was very fortunate to meet this lady through our mutual love of color!
Aditi is an extremely talented hand-letterer and it has been so rewarding to watch her business grow. I couldn't be more excited to feature Aditi and her work as the Featured Designer for February - enjoy getting to know her better in the interview below.
What do you do? I'm a graphic designer, hand lettering artist and owner or Aditi Panchal Designs. I create unique designs for brands, products and people. With the launch of a stationery line in 2017, my missions is to brighten people's day one card at a time! My most recent venture has been hosting hand lettering and cursive workshops all around Oklahoma and in NYC.
Who or what inspires you? Colors and patterns. I was born and raised in Mumbai, India, and my grandma was a seamstress, so naturally, I was surrounded by colorful fabrics everywhere. Indian fabrics have very intricate patterns and I love the way Indian women mix and match colors and yet look so elegant.
Do you prefer coffee or cocktails? Both! Iced coffee is my go to during the day, and I switch to a Gin + Tonic in the evenings.
You’re a new addition to the crayon box, what color would you be? Turkish Turquoise! I love the color of the turquoise stone and it reminds me of the deep Mediterranean sea.
What is one thing that makes you smile every day? My dog, Saul! He is an 85 pound Cane Corso and Lab mix that me and my boyfriend rescued two summers ago. With the most extreme puppy eyes, he gets whatever he wants and thinks he is a lap dog through and through.
