Maria Montes is a freelance designer and educator passionate about illustration and letterforms. Her practice is set by the principals of constant learning, sharing and educating about the creative process. In 2011 she studied a Postgraduate Course in Advanced Typography in Barcelona, and in 2012 a Typeface Design Condensed Program at Cooper Union in New York City. Nowadays, Maria splits her time between Melbourne and Barcelona workin After ten years of digital practice, I grabbed a calligraphy pen again and I haven’t let it go since then. In 2012, I studied a Type Design Condensed Program at Copper Union in New York City. During the course, I learnt a technique of hand drawing type design that I have applied to my lettering work. I use calligraphy for design purposes. My approach to each calligraphic style is the base for my lettering work. I have a strong graphic design background and I am very passionate about all kinds of letterforms: from calligraphy to lettering to typography.
