ABOUT VERONICA Veronica's interest for calligraphy piqued when she first took a calligraphy class during her years in University of Melbourne as a Design and Visual Communication undergraduate. She instantly fell in love with the soothing quality of drawing each letter and knew that this was a passion she wanted to pursue in the future. Having been a graphic designer for the past 9 years, Veronica established her own design studio 4 years ago which rapidly gained a steady client base for Corporate and Packaging Design. Due to the importance of typography as part of the design elements in every project she encountered, Veronica started practicing calligraphy again and loves experimenting with different inks and methods. Last year, Veronica started conducting several basic calligraphy classes in Jarkarta and teaches in regular crafts and diy workshop with gudily.com. She also uses Instagram to display her work and to connect with the growing calligraphy and hand lettering community online.
