In addition to designing, I am also co-founder of a wooden wick soy candle company called type.lites. This creative pursuit began after a friend and I started pouring candles in the kitchen of my Oakland apartment. Fast forward 6 years later, we now have a workspace in Jack London Square where we love getting our hands dirty. Being a two-woman team allows us to be part of the creative process from start to finish - from spawning new design concepts to hand-pouring each batch of candles to selecting the perfect fragrance to ensuring each candle is designed and packaged to perfection. Our intent has always been to create products that marry our love of typography and design with innovative craftsmanship and packaging.
