Better Left Said
Better Left Said was started in November 2014 by Sam Shannon as a creative outlet to her day job in advertising. She believes every thought, opinion and feeling is better left said and grew up with a love of doodling. The two were a match made in hand-lettering heaven and the rest was history.
Each project Sam works on is the product of her obsession with words and particular knack for making things look and sound good together. Since starting, she’s explored ways of expressing words through different mediums like art prints, greeting cards, custom designs, brand development and content writing and creation. It all comes back to her love of creative communication.
Over the last three years, Better Left Said has had the great pleasure of working with amazing companies like lululemon athletics Halifax, Stewart McKelvey, United Way Halifax, St. Francis Xavier University, Acadia University, Cape Breton University, Tidal Hair Lounge, and Staedtler North America. In 2017, Sam started The Lettering Social and held six sold out events and taught over 200 students.
