As a six year-old girl, typographer and illustrator, Whitney Barnard would sit in front of her tiny television with her head buried in sheets of paper attempting to mimic the styles and structures of the typography you see in the beginning credits of all the classic Walt Disney films. Lettering and illustration has stayed by her side ever since. Whitney attended FIT in New York for fashion illustration and after attending the Creative Circus in Atlanta, Georgia for a degree in design, she started her own design and illustration business at the age of 22: The Scribble Studio.
Where it Began
The Scribble Studio made its debut on Etsy in 2013 as a paper + print e-tail shop. The clever and cute hand-illustrated designs began to quickly make their way onto everyday lifestyle items such as greeting cards, coffee cups, pillows, tote bags and t-shirts spawning popularity and interest among well-known stores such as, Barnes and Noble, Macy’s and Hallmark.
About the Brand
Whitney letters and illustrates in her small studio in Greenville, S.C.’s quaint Sans Souci neighborhood. Her love of all things progressive and pop culture mixed with vintage and retro typography bring hilarious, catchy and whimsical designs.
With over 20,000 followers, The Scribble Studio sells their products across multiple platforms including, Amazon, Pinterest, Wanelo and to over 3,500 individual retailers internationally. The Scribble Studio has been featured on Ruffled, Style Me Pretty, Perfect Palette, Southern Living and Huffington Post.
