Hello, there! I’m Sara Elisa Verona, (not only) a Graphic Designer focusing on custom Lettering and Calligraphy currently based in Schio, in the province of Vicenza, Italy.
On the personal side of things: I absolutely adore the ocean and its marine creatures, I love to travel and explore the world and learn, always.
I am fluent in Italian, Spanish, English, French and getting good at Portuguese too, but I usually end up mixing all languages, especially when I am tired. Half Italian, half Eritrean, I grew up in Latin America, studied in French schools and in Italian universities. Being a mix of cultures, I consider myself a citizen of the world.
I have worked in Sales, Translation and Tourism but one thing I’ve always nurtured somehow, since my childhood and throughout the years, was my passion for beautiful handwriting and that is: Calligraphy.
In 2005, I started practicing calligraphy with manuals and books, it was my hobby so I could never focus on it too much. Fast-forward eight years and in 2013 I start taking online Lettering courses. Since 2015 I am a member of the Italian Calligraphers Guild (Associazione Calligrafica Italiana), a place where I train in and meet other fellow calligraphy lovers.
