custom calligraphy & design from the modern south.

“I discovered that my own little postage stamp of native soil was worth writing about and that I would never live long enough to exhaust it.”
- William Faulkner

the namesake for our shop comes from the "red clay" soil of the south, in which our design aesthetic is rooted. it's where my grandparents were born, and their grandparents, and their grandparents.

at rcp, i aspire to create clean design, with a hat-tip to the past. our work is creative and fresh - but also elicits the character of my southern roots. now, although i'm an ex-pat living abroad in mexico and now germany, my soul is still in the south. and i try to make beautiful, original pieces that can take y'all there too, no matter where you live.

although i'm not an author like Faulkner, i'm a "writer" in the literal sense: putting pen and ink to paper, writing about my little postage stamp of native soil, wherever i may be.
