Magazines, Adventures, Letterpress & Design

While working as a designer & art director for various magazines in New York City (Domino, New York Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, and InStyle), Macon craved a more hands-on approach to design outside the office. She took a letterpress workshop at The Arm Letterpress Studio in Brooklyn and was intrigued.

Starting with a small line of greeting cards using colorful hand-mixed ink & vintage woodblock type, she created an Etsy account and sold cards at the annual Martha Stewart Holiday fair. This led to requests for wedding invitations and various custom work. With an adventurous and entrepreneurial spirit, she was excited by this opportunity. She left the magazine industry to pursue working for herself - and also to chase her life-long dreams of farming in the south of France and hiking the entire Appalachian Trail.

After a glorious year of adventures, she settled into an old converted carriage house in the woods of Asheville, North Carolina. She designs & prints from her home studio. Macon is available for custom work, and continues to create greeting cards for retail & wholesale.
