Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. 

Hi! I’m Delaina. I’m a small town gal living in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. In 2016, I started lettering by addressing envelopes for a friend’s wedding. I never thought my new found hobby would become a real business! Since the start of DJD I have had the honor of working with amazing couples and businesses across the Chicago area and beyond.

After much thought, this past January I took a leap and left my job. I am now a full time student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago! It has been amazing to dive head first into the art world and not only refine my calligraphy but broaden my horizons to new art forms.

I specialize in wedding & event signage and bespoke designs. I also love on-site events and teach both calligraphy and lettering classes. I would love to work with you! Send me a message and let’s create together!
