meet us!

we recently put together our bios and we are so excited about how they fit each of us so well! If you've just started hanging out with us on the interwebs.... we hope these give you a little insight about who Huckleberry is and why we do what we do!

Anna puts semicolons where they belong and makes sure we all use our adverbs correctly. She's big on list making and cookie baking. She helps choose colors and fonts and has been known to read three books in a matter of days in the name of design research. She gained these mad fact finding skills at St. Edward’s University where she earned her BA in global affairs. She also loves to make things pretty for social shindigs and soirees. 

Her heart leaps for dachshunds, flowers and dessert.

Chels makes a mean playlist and menus too! If your throwing a soiree, she's the master of coordination and all things that make you smile. She's also got a knack for killer marketing strategies that grew from her Communications degree from the University of Houston where she studied Media Production, Interdisciplinary Art, and she threw in a few years of learning at the Conrad N. Hilton School of Hotel and Restaurant Management. She helps design print goods and is currently curating a handmade/vintage collection for the Huckleberry Shoppe. 

She fancies the color teal, our digital lumberjack and typography.

Will is a virtuoso of web design and woodworking. He's basically our resident digital lumberjack. He's got a slew of ideas to help brand your company and a keen eye for design. He creates and codes websites and keeps everyday Huckleberry business running smoothly. With a bachelor’s in marketing from the McCombs School of business at UT Austin, he's learned to keep the client's branding and goals on path. 

He's mad about building, sweet tea and gangsta rap.

Let us be your Huckleberry!

fonts we love

a collection of fonts we're loving lately and why:

1. futura I like this font because of how adaptable it and its variations are to the area around it. In the right execution, it can be serious, playful, muted, informative, or loud.

2. mesquite Because I'm from Texas that's why! You always know a western font when you see it, and fonts like this are constantly cool or overused, to me that means it'll be here for some time. I also love seeing western style fonts used in a non-western concept, keeps it fun.

3. museo slab 500 I like to see (fairly) understated fonts like museo slab paired with more in-your-face fonts like mesquite or romantiques to tone it down. Their a match made in heaven, I think.

4. lobster When I see the Lobster I instantly think cupcake shop, and who doesn't love a cupcake? Hmm, now I'm craving a red velvet...

5. archer I love Archer because it is dainty and professional all at the same time and makes me feel like I can take on anything. Literally, if i had the option to put that font on anything and everything I would do it, even though I know I shouldn't. I have some sort of gravitational pull towards Archer. I should probably name a new pet Archer.

6. buttermilk by Jessica Hische is one of those fonts that inspires me to keep designing. Her fonts are so beautiful that they can stand on their own as a piece of artwork. This font pretty much makes me all around happy. 

do you have any fave fonts?
