As a child, Crystal always knew what she wanted to be when she grew up: a tiger. She really took it to heart when her parents told her she could be anything she wanted to be. To her dismay, she discovered “Tiger” was not a viable career opportunity, so she instead she jumped into the world of graphic design and eventually, lettering and calligraphy head-first and never looked back. Crystal is the owner, brand builder, letter lover, product maker, and instructor behind Crystal Petersen Design and Lettering and her Etsy/CreativeMarket store The Ampersand Shop. She has had the pleasure to work with a variety of brands and events, including The Peachtree Atlanta, Sony PlayStation, HGTV, and Sugarbear Sleep.
