About Moonlight Motel

Rugs & Embroidered Typographic goods. Made with good karma and no drama in London by Lana Hughes, at the Moonlight Motel - *No Vacancies!

Moonlight Motel is an independent brand created by artist & designer Lana Hughes. Dedicated to the art of Hand Lettering, I design & make Chainstitch Embroidered goods, Hand Tufted Rugs, Wearables & Typographic treats of all kinds! Founded in London in 2010.

Located up in a quiet corner of North London, alongside my accomplice Sumo the Doxiepoo (Sausage dog / poodle in case you were wondering!) where our days are spent lovingly creating our textile based typographic designs. It all started eleven years ago, as a graphic designer with a huge love for typography... throughout the years, & having a constant curiosity for new ways to create lettering, that journey lead me to begin creating works with textiles, where I then discovered my love for working with & sculpting soft materials into letter based artworks. Each design revolves around bold & bright typographic pieces that have an impact. Through the use of hand drawn lettering, Moonlight Motel's designs are brought to life with the focus and aim to inspire the viewer using positive & meaningful messages.
