[SILT & PINE]
A calligraphy, handlettering and design company based in Philadelphia, Penn. The company is based in Philly; however, we are available to take on projects no matter where you are located. The company is named as a tribute to my roots, as well as a simple reminder of where I came from. Silt [see definitions below] is sediment that can be found in the Mississippi River. Pine is important to me because of the wonderful memories I have growing up visiting my grandparents pine tree farm in Mississippi.
Silt / Fine sand, clay, or other material carried by running water and deposited as a sediment, especially in a channel or harbor.
Pine / An evergreen coniferous tree that has clusters of long needle-shaped leaves. Many kinds are grown for their soft timber, which is widely used for furniture and pulp, or for tar and turpentine.
