I’m Wes Franklin, a graphic designer who specialises in custom lettering and typography. I am also Director of Design at Studio 164a, and Co-creator of Charitable.

I live in Bendigo, Australia, with my wife and two boys.

I’ve spent 12 years working as a print and web designer, but for the last two years I’ve been spending more and more time offline – honing my hand lettering skills. I’m passionate about my craft, always seeking to learn and to push myself creatively and technically.

When I’m not drawing letters or designing websites, I’m outdoors – camping or fishing or kicking a ball with my boys. I know it’s cliche, but I do enjoy a good coffee too.

I’m always interested in taking on new projects and collaborating with other artists and designers. If you’d like to work together, you can reach me via my contact page.

Here’s what people are saying about me

Wes created the logo for my business – he was awesome to work with and really listened to what I wanted. He had great communication with me and work efficiently. I couldn’t have been happier with the results. Highly recommend!

Carla Russo, The Artful Room

We asked Wes to create a design to use on a tshirt and were really pleased with the outcome. He was quick and efficient, and very receptive to our comments and feedback. Would happily recommend him to others.

Ben Gillbanks, Master WP

I am so happy! A little idea has now developed into a beautiful website. I am so very grateful for all your work, ideas and support.

Jan Little, connectagift.com

I knew I had made the right choice in a designer when Wes presented me with the initial designs. I was not only surprised at how quickly he delivered the work but at the high degree of quality.

Wayne Allen, Imaginate Labs


Hand Lettering

Hand lettering is one of my biggest passions, and it’s a great tool for adding a one-of-a-kind, personal touch to your next project.

Hand lettering can be used for all kinds of things, including:

  • Unique logo
  • Event promotion
  • Tshirt design
  • Wedding invitation
  • Custom print for your home

Brand Identity

Whether you’re just getting started or in need of a refresh, a unique brand identity will help you stand out amongst competitors.

Your brand identity may include (but is not limited to):

  • Logo
  • Business cards
  • Stationery
  • Website
  • Signage
  • Marketing material
  • Brand guidelines

Web Design

Your website should be beautiful and responsive, but more importantly, it should help you achieve your goals. I’ll work with you to create a website that does just that, and more:

  • Sell products
  • Accept donations
  • Coordinate fundraising events
  • Email list integration
  • Event calendars and tickets
  • Analytics integration
  • Hosting
