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.

Calligraphic designers are similar to graphic designers and incorporate calligraphy in their creations. Calligraphy graphic design can be seen on product packaging. It is used by designers for product packaging and labeling, murals, advertising campaigns and even movie posters.

Traditionally, calligraphy is used for wedding invitations and greeting cards, writing letters, content for books and magazines, and as an art itself. However, in recent years, calligraphy has evolved and can now be used for a lot of other purposes. Modern calligraphy designs include social – media posts and blogs, website content and illustrations. Calligraphy banner design is also another popular digital calligraphic design. Calligraphy banner design is used for banner ads, both in print and digital media, to attract the reader towards it. Modern calligraphy designs also include imprinting calligraphy on porcelain and other serve ware, photo frames, fabrics, accessories, tattoo art and jewelry.

There are a number of calligraphic designers who work as freelancers and take up calligraphic jobs as a means of fulfilling a hobby or passion. These freelancers can be college students, working professionals, retired people or anyone looking to find freelance work online.

Calligraphy graphic design should be understandable and yet visually appealing. When looking to hire a calligraphy designer, make sure your freelancer can:

  • Design original content
  • Use one style of calligraphy throughout the design
  • Produce a few drafts or rough sketches of the job before the final cut
  • Make alterations to the design, if needed

  • Ability to think out of the box and have a creative bent
  • Ability to design clean and easily readable designs
  • Methodical approach to work
  • An eye for detail and excellent precision skills
