HEllo!

I’m Sinikka, a handlettering artist and typeface designer based in Lisbon, Portugal.

In the early 2014’s I took first steps in graphic design and started making everything from logos to social media graphics for clients all over the world.

Creating graphics I got obsessed with typography (and mainly handlettered brush types). I loved how it would make things look more personal and interesting. So out of curiousity I started teaching myself calligraphy and how to make my own fonts.

 

Where do I find inspiration?

 

I find inspiration everywhere around me. I often take photos of things that have a certain look or give me a feeling that inspires me for my work. I absolutely love Pinterest because it makes collecting your ideas so easy! I could spent weeks just browsing through it.
