I'm excited to officially introduce my studio, Lute + Harp, along with its new online home LuteAndHarp.com!
For those of you who don't know me, my name is Christin O'Bryan, and I am a graphic designer and lettering enthusiast based in Greenville, South Carolina. I have over 10 years of experience in graphic design, and I have a special place in my heart for typography and hand lettering.
As I began to consider names for my making my studio endeavors more official, "Lute and Harp" stood out to me. Even when I tried to brainstorm dozens of other names, L+H was what I kept coming back to. The phrase originates from Psalm 150 and is also part of a summer camp song my sister and I used to sing as kids. We'd giggle over the sound of "lute"—it was just so fun to say! Psalm 150 begins by saying:
Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness!
I believe that whatever I do—art or otherwise—I should be working to bring praise and glory to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I love working on a wide variety of projects. If you visited me in the studio, I'm illustrating verses and quotes today (to follow along with my projects, follow me on Instagram). Tomorrow might be something totally different! Projects I've led include brand identity development and implementation, magazine publication design, branded environments, wedding and event invitation suites, and digital illustration, to name just a few. Check out my current portfolio.

Thanks for stopping by the site. I'd love to hear from you and maybe even partner with you on your next design project.
