About the Founder
Honest Type is a calligraphy business founded by self-taught calligrapher, Jacinta, an Aussie living in Los Angeles with her husband and their playful cat, Cali. Jacinta discovered calligraphy and hand-lettering after moving to Los Angeles. With free time now open for her to explore, Jacinta decided to try a calligraphy starter-kit a friend had gifted as a going-away present. As her love for the art form began to flourish, Honest Type was born. Founded in Los Angeles, Honest Type is privileged to work with businesses, event planners, entertainment industry professionals & producers, wedding planners, brides & their grooms, and so many more in Southern California and abroad.
First off, we were not an easy couple to work with. Wedding planning was sadly not the number one priority in our minds (This is from the someone who booked her H&M two weeks...not months...before the big day). Thankfully Jacinta was able to take our mishmash of ideas and vision and create unique and beautiful pieces for our wedding. She helped to narrow down ideas and create a more cohesive vision of how we wanted our signs to add to the venue atmosphere.
The items Jacinta created included wedding welcome sign, table signage, bar menu, seating sign, and digital projection of our names. All of our signs were done on clear acrylic in white lettering in order to go with the abundant greenery at our venue. The digital projection of our names in calligraphy was a last minute addition that really showcased her talent. Her work backdropped a lot of my favorite photos from our wedding day.
In regards to the design process was simple and straightforward. She would email us drafts of the pieces and we talked over the phone or emailed back our input. Edits were also prompt. In regards to the cost, everything was itemized clearly and there were no hidden fees. On the day of the wedding, Jacinta set-up all the pieces.
- artwork is unique and can be saved for home decor
- clear communication
Thank you again!
My experience with the Honest type was amazing, from the initial enquiry email to picking up my agate slices.
Jacinta is very creative in her work, and puts so much love and effort into each piece she creates.
I would recommend her to anyone. She is brilliant.
