Welcome to The Styled Writing Company,
a calligraphy and design studio.

We specialise in elegant modern calligraphy, design work and detailing for all occasions.

Founded in 2015 by former event planner Henrietta Martindale, the studio has a wealth of experience in project management and event styling, working closely with clients to bring their stationery to life through a considered design journey and beautifully hand inked detailing.

The Styled Writing Company offers a fully immersive and bespoke approach, bringing a creative eye to the overall aesthetic of the occasion and works with the finest artisans and fellow creatives; designers, illustrators and specialist print houses, to ensure a stunning finish across all stationery elements.


Hi I’m Henrietta, founder of The Styled Writing Company,  a calligraphy and design studio born from a life long love affair with handwriting and a background in event management.

After leaving behind a much loved & exhilarating career designing fashion parties and co-running a private members’ club in Mayfair to have my first daughter, I soon yearned for creative pleasures once again. I thought about all the things I loved; people, parties, design & calligraphy, along with a deep desire to create a harmonious work life balance with my new life as a mother, and the idea for the studio was born. 

After years spent honing my natural handwriting using fountain pens, ball points and pencils, I trained in the art of pointed nib work and began my journey into modern calligraphy.

Inspired by clean lines, natural textures and contemporary urban living, the studio’s aesthetic is elegant and simple with an understated, laid back sense of style.

My inspiration comes from the Suffolk coast where I grew up; big skies, endless horizons and a sense of space, alongside the creativity and vibrancy of North West London where I live and work. I feel the two contrast beautifully to inspire my style.

The studio is built upon strong principles which keep the customer at its heart. I work closely with all my clients, embarking on a creative journey to bring stationery dreams to life.


In order to provide a fully encompassing service to my clients, I often collaborate with much loved and respected fellow creatives who are masters of their craft; artists, illustrators, designers and print houses who share a desire to produce results of the finest quality.

Collaborators include:


I love to work with a range of clients, from private individuals to event planners, fashion houses to behemoths of the London cultural scene. A warm and professional approach to each and every one of my clients means they embark on a creative journey with me, however large or small the brief may be.

We have worked with Hen since she first started The Styled Writing Co and she has consistently produced elegant calligraphy to help elevate our private events. She is highly professional and a joy to work with.

Henrietta is a magical wizard. She understands our vision and just brings it all together. Responds like an angel under incredibly time-pressured situations, which in this industry isn't always the case. We'd like not to have to share her. But we truly feel very lucky and honoured to have The Styled Writing Co providing us with beautiful and unique touches.

Georgia & Kara, Founders, STUDIO WHITE
