My portfolio of modern calligraphy styles is bang on trend and ever evolving. These contemporary styles are sort after for weddings and celebrations and all things fun! Most suited for when being traditional no longer applies!
My copperplate style is based on traditional copperplate but is looser and has playful elements, i.e. lots of bounce and a few squiggles in unusual places. I am able to write traditional copperplate if required.
The first calligraphy script I learnt was italic. Italic can be fun too, but it’s also suitable for more formal occasions. A simple black italic script on white card or paper can add gravitas… and elegance. My portfolio is more demonstrative of the fun side of italic. I enjoy writing it with a scroll nib and mixing this with traditional italic.
