I love Letters!

I am so happy to announce that Black & White Studios is finally launched! Black & White Studios was founded out of an absolute love and passion for all things letters. My name is Hollie Arnett and I am the owner and founder of Black and White Studios. I am obsessed with letters in all shapes and sizes. Whether it’s typography, lettering, type design or sign writing, if there are letters and glyphs involved, I’m there.

I wanted to fill my days with letters, and fill the homes, businesses and events of others with beautiful letters too, so I started this venture. The mission is to spread a little joy with every letter, and that’s what I plan to do.

I’m dedicated to the craft of typography, type design and hand lettering. I love the history of it, and it actually runs in my family, so I think that typography is in my blood. I also believe in the power of words, and the impact that care and attention to detail has upon the design and visual representation of these words.

Black & White Studios?

Black & White Studios came about because, well, most of my work is Black & White, so that’s a good start! I also like the idea that typography and lettering is printed and there’s the saying about things being “printed in black and white,” so that fits too. I then read this quote, “The most colorful thing in the world is black and white, it contains all colors and at the same time excludes all” and that sealed the deal! And here we are!

Custom Hand Lettering

Black & White Studios is now available for a range of typographic and lettering work to elevate your brand or business through the power of words. Whether you're planning a wedding, in need of a mural for your new office, looking for a personalised gift for a friend, undertaking a new brand for your business, or wanting some live artwork for an event, Black & White Studios is dedicated to creating a tailored lettering piece just for you.

Typographic & Editorial Design

Black & White Studios is passionate about letters in all shapes and forms, and dedicated to the craft of typography. I am a qualified graphic designer, a member of the International Society of Typographic Designers, and typography tutor at Massey University. Believing in the power of good typography for brands and businesses, Black & White Studios is also available for editorial or typographic work to harness this power for you and your venture.

The Store

The studio also sells artworks and other typographic products which is a fun bonus!

The Future

I’m so looking forward to seeing where this adventure will take me. I have big dreams and I can’t wait to see them come to fruition. I’m hoping to add loads more products to the store, and ultimately be freelancing as a typographer & hand-lettering artist full time, so fingers crossed! Thanks so much for joining me on this journey and I hope you enjoy the ride!
