In your own words, what is “The Note Writer”?
The Note Writer is a boutique graphic design studio, which specializes in modern calligraphy. My calligraphy is created by hand using a nib, pen holder, ink and paper. The design is then digitally edited to create high quality logos and prints.
How did you become interested in calligraphy? And what has your craft taught you?
I received a calligraphy kit as a child but couldn’t figure out how to write with it. Then a few years ago I became interested in the art of letterpress and acquired my own vintage press. I started reading a lot of letterpress and design books and decided to study graphic design in 2013. Through my studies I gained a greater understanding of typography and handwritten fonts and then became exposed to the work of a lot of talented calligraphers, which made me decided to have another go at learning this beautiful art.
