Kelly Rabkin

Kelly Rabkin is a designer, illustrator, and letterer from the Jersey Shore. She is a graduate of Kean University, where she now teaches Typography. Kelly celebrates the working hand through her lettering, which primarily utilises pointed pen calligraphy, brush lettering, and chalk. While most at ease behind a block of cold press watercolor paper with brush in hand, Kelly has found her footing in lettering on found materials such as reclaimed windows and salvaged chalkboard and mirrors. Guided by a driving desire to tell stories through thoughtful design, Kelly founded her stationery and event signage studio Kelmade Goods in 2017, with the intent of being the visual voice of a moment in time.
