a luxe contraband is the studio of Alyce Harley, focusing on hand-lettering designs.

Alyce first discovered the possibilities of nib & ink while studying for the bar exam and drafting legalese at an environmental litigation firm. What began as a passion project quickly became a calling. Her lettering work-- which ranges from modern calligraphy to abstract freeform script-- is spirited, emotive, and never too serious. With each stroke of the pen, a luxe contraband seeks to create beautiful things through unconventional forms and perspectives. 

A Bay Area transplant by way of Los Angeles, Alyce is an avid snowboarder, traveler, curious human, humanist, and is always game for a slice of pizza.
