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.
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.
