Hello! I’m Belinda Kou — a Chicago-based lettering artist and designer.

About Me

I’m a creative with a penchant for drawing food, foliage and flowing lines, combining illustrations with hand lettering to create tasteful and vibrant graphics. I will tackle your projects with this combination to help you stand out from your competition, providing thoughtful and energetic solutions and adding interest to your work with colors and dimension. Services include custom graphics for products, book covers, advertisement campaigns and social media as well as commercial commissions and logo design, with a focus on the food and beverage industry.

When I'm not geeking out over ligatures and flourishes, you can find me checking out restaurants, exploring the city and sights through photography, and enjoying city-living with my husband and two little girls.
