If you’re a fan of typography (if you read this blog I’m sure you are), you have to check out the Instgram feed of Australian designer Ashleigh: willtypefordondraper.

Ashleigh owns a small stationery studio, Peggy Takes Manhattan, which is named after her beloved Nanna and also serves as a shout out to her Mad Men hero, Ms Peggy Olson.

Ashleigh is a self-proclaimed “lover of all things vintage and typographic” and gets her kicks “designing, creating and dabbling in photography.” Her love of vintage design is brought to life in her stationery designs, and her Instagram feed if a reflection of her design aesthetic — colorful and nostalgic with a focus on typography and signage.



I like to say that I’m a designer by day, blogger by night and photographer on the side. I started my career in package design before going into advertising, then B2B communications, a small stint back into packaging and I now work for a large digital agency. I am so lucky to get to do what I love every day, but I am always looking for creative outlets. My blog, Girly Obsessions, allows me to design something that represents me – my aesthetic and my obsessive personality! I love taking and editing photos, and am slightly addicted to Instagram and Lightroom. I also love to travel and explore. I love to bake. And most importantly, I just love to think creatively.
