As a graphic designer myself, I’m very fond of artists who take art to a whole other level. This is especially true when these artists do things by hand, or combine handmade things with the digital medium. This is exactly what Filipino handcraft artist Lai Reyes-Geluz does, and TAE loves her for it!

After studying at the School of Design & Arts at De La Salle’s College of St. Benilde in Manila, Philippines, she pursued her passion working for design and publishing companies before making it on her own. She created Made By Lai, a company dedicated to handmade crafts including paper cuts, calligraphy, chalk art, graphic design, and various weddings, birthdays, and parties that involve handmade styling.

Here are some TAE favs from her cute collection of handcrafted and handwritten things:
