I'm David Grimes

I'm an independent designer from Portland, Oregon, who is passionate about strategic design and hand-lettering. I write about business, the lettering arts, and my continuing pursuit of masterful practice.


I create compelling solutions that speak to your prospects in their own language, and develop simplistic workflows that are always a step ahead of your customers.


I make hand-lettered logos, professional marks, and illustrations for commercial use. With your brand, it's not only what you say, but how you say it.
