I'm Frances MacLeod, a graphic designer and lettering artist.

I’m currently living in sunny New York City after completing Type@Cooper’s post-graduate summer program in type design. Most recently, I worked with the bright folks at Leo Burnett’s Dept of Design on clients like McDonalds, Samsung, Kraft, and others.

Born and raised in a bread basket (Wichita, KS), I studied graphic design & art direction at Columbia College Chicago. Since graduating, I’ve collaborated with with studios, agencies, and clients of all sizes. I travel and speak with Lost Type Co-op, and helped launch Workshop Chicago. I love helping good ideas grow, and feel especially useful when I get to combine strategy and craft. 

In my free time I enjoy friends, eating, and traveling. I’m always glad to exchange / receive recommendations regarding all three!
