These are all from my Instagram feed. I felt the need to document all the inspiring things people created and posted for this past weekend’s Women’s March in major US cities. I wish I was there to participate, and I am happy to hear that many of our friends and relatives did so. As a mom of three girls I think it is more important than ever “to show up and speak up” for women’s rights and equality for all, because unfortunately whatever happens in Trump-land affects us all.

Some shameless self-promotion

And now, for some shameless self-promotion! I am happy to present my own lettering work! Feel free to check all my work, with lettering both for english and greek, on my new Behance page.

Lettering is the craft of drawing letters. It’s not a font that you can buy somewhere and type your text with. It’s more like an illustration with the shape of letters, that forms words and text. It’s the art of combining letter shapes, colors and composition to tell a story and send a message. The result is unique and custom. It starts by hand with pencil sketches, continues with inking and usually ends up on the computer where color and texture is added. Lettering can also be very versatile. It can be applied in advertising and editorial design, book covers, logos, packaging etc.

Please contact me for lettering commissions!

You can also find a selection of my work available on Etsy, in the form of art prints.

I find the work of Mehdi Saeedi exquisite! He combines his experience in classical islamic calligraphy with a strong  contemporary visual look. An internationally known artist based in Philadelphia, Saeedi was born in Tehran, Iran and trained in art & design. He is a typographer and calligrapher whose expertise is zoomorphic lettering design—shaping words into animals and other forms. He has received many awards and his works are to be found in museums around the world.
