Welcome to Toasty Type

Modern Calligraphy, Illustration and Hand Lettering.

Hello, welcome, come in, it’s lovely to have you here. I’m Toasty Type and I create custom modern calligraphy, hand lettering, and illustrations for a wide range of clients, and I’d be delighted to create something for you. I also run workshops in Modern Calligraphy, Calligraphy for Mindfulness, and Private Workshops too. So take a little time to explore my site. If there’s anything you would like to chat about, please give me a shout! I’d be delighted to talk to you about your ideas.


Hello you - It's me

A graduate of Grays School of Art, I took a detour via Events Management and Marketing before realising it was lettering that really set my soul on fire and calmed my stressed mind! I’ve spent years refining my craft, learning from the masters, and attending many courses in Calligraphy and Hand Lettering before starting Toasty Type in 2018.

Over the years, I’ve helped many eager students across the UK learn the beautiful art of Modern Calligraphy. I’m passionate about the stress-busting powers of creativity, and an advocate for mindfulness through calligraphy.

From my bright studio in the East End of Glasgow, I create beautiful artworks for a range of clients including Edinburgh Gin, Collins Debden Stationery, Macallan Whiskey, ISS Facility Services, Lululemon, and Kiehls as well as private commissions. My work is also popular with brides-to-be who  order unique signage, invitations and painted jackets to mark their special days.

When I’m not in the studio, or on site, you can find me wild swimming in a chilly loch, spending time with my family, and loudly shaking the cat treats at the back door, waiting for my elderly cat to saunter in.
