Cooke-ing Up A Company!

Disclaimer: I didn’t misspell the title. I’m making a pun that you’ll understand if you keep reading (and hopefully that’s an incentive). Anyway, if you’re in the mood for detailed and trendy prints, look no further. Lionheart Prints is the place for you! You can check out their awesome website here:

Someone in my Graphic Design History class did their final presentation on this print shop, and stumbled upon in while roaming New Jersey. Lionheart Prints was the brainchild of Liz Maute Cooke, who makes a living out of running the shop and giving workshops on the basics of brush pen lettering, digitizing artwork, and making your own stationary. It’s inspiring to see how she jumped into a graphic design career at only 6 years old, by stealing markers from her mother’s desk drawer (and I think a lot of us can relate to her beginning).

Liz Cooke takes workshops with master letterers all over the world to improve her craft. She found a passion, and instead of sitting on it she worked hard to create a shop and continually grow through teaching and being taught by others. We should take note of Liz and many others who are always building upon their talents!

So that’s my piece. What do you guys think about her work?
