YELL WORK! Studio/jamie shelburne crowley

Yell Work! is the graphic design and lettering studio of Jamie Shelburne Crowley, a graphic designer and lettering lover from Amarillo, Texas.

Writing in third person gets super awkward super fast so let's not pretend someone is writing this for me. I focus my efforts on branding, hand-lettering and event design. I love to create beautiful work that offers highly creative and professional solutions to problems and to make invitations (and envelopes!) that people won’t want to throw away.

What does Yell Work! mean?

I actually don't like to yell...at all. Especially about work! But, my last name (Crowley) spelled backwards is yelworc and that's where Yell Work! came from. I think it works because even though I don't like to yell, if I did it would be about something I am passionate about. I tend to be pretty passionate about my work.

A little bit more about me:

I currently work as the graphic designer for BSA Health system in Amarillo, Texas. Before that, I was the senior designer at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas. And even before that, I worked as the catch-all girl at an art gallery called the Center for Contemporary Arts in Abilene, Texas. 

I really enjoy making things for people and spend most of my time doing just that. A lot of this “making things” consists of designing things (I’m fortunate enough to get paid to do that most of the time) but I also make other things, including but not limited to: cards, collages, funky fabric animals, imaginative explanations for why things are the way they are, and mix cds.  

Other things I enjoy are: animals, asking questions, bean burritos, Calvin and Hobbes, Cheerios, Christmas, funny singing, gilmore girls, googling, hand-lettering, houseplants, illustration, listening to music, lowercase type, my sweet husband, nicknames, nostalgia, observing, old movies, practicing calligraphy, reading, and Wayne Thiebaud’s paintings.
