This Issue's Cover Artist

Crystal Kluge

Crystal is an illustrator & lettering artist based in Minneapolis/St.Paul. Lettering professionally since 1999, her signature lettering style helped launch the popular “modern calligraphy” trend. She started her career working at PaperSource, and quickly gathered commission requests from customers seeing her work in the window displays and throughout the store. Over the years her designs have graced magazine pages, a multitude of giftware & stationery products, advertising campaigns, logos & store fronts, art museum walls, tattooed bodies and an eclectic range of special events from swank Hollywood parties, Park Avenue soirées and Moroccan bashes to intimate mountain nuptials in a yurt.
