What I've been up to lately...

@thechicagocalligrapher

Things I do:

  • Calligraphy and Hand Lettering

  • Watercolor illustration

  • Live calligraphy for corporate events

When I'm not writing pretty things, I'm probably:

  • Commuting (not that I enjoy it)

  • Watching a true crime doc

  • Backpacking in a National Park with my family 

  • Eating chocolate + peanut butter 

  • Wishing I had a dog

  • Staring at a sunset sky

I'M NORA,

the face behind The Chicago Calligrapher! I was born and raised in Chicago (yes, actual Chicago!) and work on a broad range of projects for weddings, gifts, and corporate events.

 

My love for letters, drawing, and creating goes way back to grade school, when I would always get in trouble for doodling letter collages during class (in 6th grade, I became completely obsessed with recreating computer fonts with pencil). 

 

Opposite my creative side, I also love math and problem solving, which led to my degree and current career in supply chain management. Surprisingly, my analytical background (and perfectionism) is pretty useful when it comes to calligraphy.
