All about calligraphy

Since 1995 I work as a professional calligrapher for private people, advertising and communications agencies, for schools as a calligraphic teacher and as an artist. Thanks to my artistic research I can adapt my way of working to people requests. We can use calligraphy in many ways, but every time it's a new project, born thanks to help and passion of good clients.

WHAT IS calligraphy

beautiful writings of the past

Awesome contemporary calligraphic styles

the most important is the calligrapher way, her vital energy.

The meaning goes beyond the words

Content and its visual are one

A good calligraphy is when energy, content and visual are blended

The most important is our message

contemporary calligraphy is very different from formal calligraphy, like contemporary art and art of the past

Since 1995 I worked as a graphic designer and I am happy that I was asked mostly for logotypes and trademarks, for me the best job in the world. In a little sign you can find the history of a product, of a brand or of a group of people. Sometimes there are generations of people behind a company and a logo. Understanding, interpreting and represent those values il like an amazing travel. - custom handmade calligraphic logotypes - written letters for advertising - lettering & Co.
