senior lettering artist
Barb Mizik has been happily creating at Hallmark for over 25 years, and it’s only natural — her grandfather crafted cards for his wife, daughters and grandchildren for every special occasion. Barb herself has been drawing since she was very young, and doodles on anything that dares to be still and paper-like when she’s nearby. Her professional technique is anything but random, however. An expert in hand lettering, she reads the copy carefully to get a feel for the tone of the message. Then she brings it to life with the perfect style, whether that’s formal and traditional or casual and whimsical.
Barb is married and lives in Leawood, Kansas. She has a grown son, a daughter almost out of high school, a dog and two cats.
