Adorn Monograms

The jewel in the crown of the Adorn collection may be the three monogram design styles: Adorn Solo for one letter, Adorn Duo for a pair, and Adorn Trio for the classic three-letter monogram. Simply type in the lowercase letters and your monogram is finished. These monograms were carefully wrought: each combination of letters is a revelation of complex crafting, with no collisions or overlaps. Despite their intricacy and detail, these are not your grandmother’s monograms. They are modern and bursting with personality. Worthington sketched them in pencil, then used a fountain pen for contrast and detail before digitization. Solo is fresh and airy; Duo is more calligraphic, blossoming before your eyes; Trio is denser, with the center letter carrying a hint of art nouveau. Graphic designers will have their own uses for these; DIYers will see a takeoff point for jewelry, cards, invitations, rubber stamps—an endless source for personalizing and elevating the everyday, the special gathering, or a handmade creation.
