Making hand-inked notes may not be at the top of everyone’s to-do list, but the art of ornamental design remains a captivating one.

Illustrator, vector artist, and videographer Ozerina Anna leads the pack with her vintage-inspired labels, while Transia Design rounds things off with ethnic-inspired designs.
