10 Designs to Watch in 2020: Krystal Whitten
Krystal Whitten Studio
Aesthetic of the Line?
Hand lettered with vibrant colors and hand painted textures, my aim is to turn scripture and inspirational words into works of art that encourage, comfort and give joy. From cards to journals, I want the powerful words of scripture to be at the center of what we do.
Our Truth Cards are 20 hand-lettered scripture verses with a pine block stand. We have several editions now and they are well loved.
You are God’s Masterpiece card. I love the gold foil and that it can work for a birthday or graduation or encouragement. The sentiment reminds someone of their worth and value.
Gray hair is a Crown of Splendor card. Who knew that a gray hair card would be so popular! It reads “Happy Birthday” inside, so we’re celebrating our splendor that comes with age.
The Lettering Prayer Journal was one of our first products and it continues to be a big hit. Customers enjoy this creative way to write out prayers and connect with God.
Current Design Obsession?
I’m fascinated by abstract painting overlaid with large florals.
Gerbera Daisies because they’re such happy flowers.
A lazy day where I can cozy up with a mystery novel and a cup of coffee and do nothing but read.
