Hire Calligraphy Designers
Calligraphy is best described as a form of art, where the artist handwrites or hand-paints letters and symbols beautifully. The lettering usually has a rhythm and design to it. Calligraphy makes written words and symbols aesthetically beautiful, but as an art, it requires precision and skill. A calligrapher, also known as a calligraphy designer, is an artist who has mastered the art of calligraphy and does it professionally.
What Calligraphy Designers Do?
A calligraphy designer, like any other artist, takes up commissions for creating unique and beautiful calligraphic designs as per the client’s needs. They are passionate and creative individuals who liaise with the client to understand their requirements and create calligraphic text. Calligraphy designers scan their handwritten designs and convert them into vector design to be used digitally.
Calligraphy can also be undertaken by typography designers. Typography is the art of choosing typeface and fonts. These designers are responsible for creating a type layout that is readable and yet appealing.

Modern calligraphy designs include social – media posts and blogs, website content and illustrations. Calligraphy banner design is also another popular digital calligraphic design.
