Hi there, I'm Deborah, the creator + romantic behind this one-girl band—Deborah Tseng Studio.

What started out as an expensive hobby (watercolor and calligraphy) in one hot summer in 2015 has since transformed into a passionate love for papers and the art of letterpress printing.

It was during my academic years in Korea between 2014-2015 when I suddenly realized how I have been walking through life with a belief that wasn’t truly mine.

With an urge to understand my real self, I embarked on a journey of paints and brushes, picking up the habit of creating only after abandoning it for more than a decade. Soon enough, my love for brush lettering led to the introduction of letterpress printing.

The process of creating by hand, reminded me of how beautiful it is to embrace imperfection and appreciate the uniqueness that comes with it. It is the human element, the tactile impression that breathes meaning into the things we create.

I’ve recently moved back to Taiwan with my husband and our cat where I continue to work as a freelance letterer while collaborating with a local letterpress printer to produce my own line of paper goods.

Occasionally, I also print from home for smaller projects with recycled materials.

You are welcomed to follow along my creative endeavors on Instagram, or get in touch with ideas for collaborations or projects!

I love talking about papers and printing. Let’s keep in touch:)
