Brave Girl is a
design studio + blog with a feminine influence
Hello! I’m Emily Bode, a Midwest graphic designer and handletterist with a Bachelors of Science degree in Graphic Design from Ferris State University. I handcraft logos and brand materials for artists and solopreneurs with conscious missions. My design approach is a balance of logic and beauty with an emphasis on minimal elements and neutral tones. Here you’ll find my latest work and advice for design students. When I’m not creating, I’m exploring this world with my husband and fur babies, usually with a journal and book in hand.
Contact me for brand design and lettering rates.
