Gifted with talent in both pen and pun, Pille is making a way for herself in the Omaha design field. Born and raised in Nebraska, she began playing around in the lettering field during her time at Metro Community College and says she “really found her niche”.
Since graduating she has worked a “spattering of jobs” but currently resides at Fruitful Design in the Benson area.
“My job is hand lettering, which just involves creating new and interesting ways of arranging letters to communicate in a beautiful and (hopefully) effective way. Sometimes the end result is a logo, other times it’s just a stand alone piece. As for mediums, the possibilities are really endless, but I most often use a paper and pen and then take it into the computer to finish and tweak.”
What started out as a side project turned into something much larger as Pille created a punny spud by the name of Potato Sadly in the spring of 2015. Since then, the little guy has made his way around town in both galleries and coffee shops, as well as his very own instagram!
