Hi Cupcakes! I’m Ilana Griffo, the designer behind Sugar & Type, a fierce, sassy design studio and stationery shop.


I started my business as a creative outlet to keep me inspired and challenged after graduating with a BFA, and I quickly fell in love with the fast paced world of running my own studio. I love working with my clients one on one to solve their branding and design challenges, and they inspire me to try new things every day.


As a Pen Pal fanatic, creating greeting cards and office supplies makes me giddy. I love finding a balance between a crisp digital design and the beauty of the handmade. Sugar and Type’s office supplies not only look cute, but help you crush your goals, and stay inspired. I believe in having intention behind our products, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish.


I love that I can create tangible art by working with clients on their branding and product design. I love listening to my clients to help bring to life their vision. Having my own shop has been a source of so much fun and exploration, and has led to creating lettering and illustration projects for some really exciting projects. Our best selling product, the Rule The World Planner will release a new edition this summer and we can’t wait to share it with you!

  36. Mislim da je čalanak u Vremenu sasvim na mestu i vrlo realno gleda na deÅ¡avanja. Mnogi nazovi internet biznismeni dele lekcije ljudima kao su lenji, neznalice ili prosto glupi pa zato i neuspeÅ¡ni i sami krivi za to Å¡to nisu zadovoljni onim Å¡to su postigli, poptuno zanemarujuči okruženje i sredinu koji su sve smo ne pogodni da ljudi uspeÅ¡no započnu neki samostalan posao. A da ne pričamo o tome kako ti siti biznismeni ne bi baÅ¡ smeli da se pohvale kako su započeli svoj biznis.VA:F [1.9.20_1166]please wait…VA:F [1.9.20_1166](from 0 votes)
