Suzy Richardt is a hand-lettering artist working from her home studio in an 1895 bungalow in downtown Dayton, Ohio.  Inspired by vintage typography and calligraphy, from flourished penmanship to early 20th century advertising, her work consistently shows an attention to crisp detail and craftsmanship.

Primarily a chalk artist, Suzy loves the tangible, get-your-hands-dusty experience of designing with this simple yet endlessly flexible medium. Her background in theatrical scene painting gives her a sense of how her work complements other design elements in your space - and means she's not afraid of tall ladders, or power tools.

Suzy was honored to design for the launch of a number of new local businesses that are revitalizing our city. She'd love for you to visit these Dayton originals and see her work in the wild.
