If you've been here before you probably noticed it looks a bit different around here. Okay- a LOT different! Over the past few months I've have been on a looonnng journey rebranding and relaunching our website.
I first started RC&D in 2014 by accident. (Yes, you read that correctly) I first learned calligraphy while expecting my first little one. Trying my hand at calligraphy had always been on my creative bucket list, and three years ago I pick up a nib pen. In 2014, my husband and I welcomed our first baby into the world and I left my job to stay at home.
Since I had some time to spare (naptime to be precise) I used my newfound calligraphy skills to help out with a wedding. Then I did another wedding, and eventually referral requests started rolling in. My creative hobby unexpectedly turned into a little business and Raleigh Calligraphy & Design was born.
Since then, I have expanded this business to also include invitation design, stationary, art prints and a small selection of home goods. At first, I operated from an Etsy shop, then grew to also have a standalone website, RaleighCalligraphy.com
The blog, RaleighCalligraphyBlog.com, came a year later. Though the blog was successful, I decided it was time to have one central place for RC&D to live on the internet. Now, there's just ONE site, with eCommence and the blog in one amazing place.
In addition to the new website I decided to rebrand with a fresher logo and more defined direction for this growing business.
This new site, perfectly embodies our brand and the new direction we're heading. Now that you're here, I hope you'll stay a while and have a look around.
What do you think of the new site?
