It all started when a calligrapher met a type designer.

In 2011, Molly Jacques was working full time as a wedding calligrapher. Her unique take on modern calligraphy contributed to the revival of this timeless art and quickly caught the eye of type designer, Dathan Boardman.

In early 2012 Molly and Dathan made the decision to team up as Great Lakes Lettering to provide calligraphic inspired fonts to the public so that everyone could add a hand made touch to digital designs.

Since establishing GLL fonts, Molly and Dathan's designs have made their way into thousands of designs throughout the world. As Great Lakes Lettering continues to grow, they have welcomed some of the best calligraphers in the industry to contribute to the foundry's already impressive list of available fonts.
