Welcome to Iskra Design! I am a full time calligrapher and lettering artist. I create custom hand lettering, handwriting and calligraphy for advertising, editorial design, book covers and packaging. The work on my website is unique lettering design created for clients or for portfolio projects. Here you will find bespoke custom letterforms, not fonts. Read here about the difference between fonts and custom lettering.

In my portfolios I have created an in-depth resource for the person seeking unique expression through letterforms. You will find collections gathered here by style and by application. The Project category is where you will see lettering and calligraphy applied in print or other media. Some categories overlap, so you may find portfolios repeated in a few places. My newest work is usually posted on my blog, Alphabet Roadtrip.

Iskra is one of the finest lettering artists in the country. The project she worked on with me was a huge hit with the client: they loved her creativity and the freshness she brought to their campaign. She is also a wonderful fine artist, creating sensitive and deep artwork that makes you go “Ahhhh.” – David Owen Hastings, David Owen Hastings Design

Please take a look around my world. Are you looking for help designing a logo? I love working with businesses and entrepreneurs to create a uniquely perfect identity. Do you have a book cover that needs to make a powerful statement? I create custom title and author branding for major publishing houses as well as independents and authors publishing their first book. Need a fresh look for a packaging design?  I love finding the voice for a product that makes its brand stand above the crowd.

Give me a call and let’s talk. I’d love to see how we can work together to make something beautiful!

Working with Iskra was a pleasure, she was ever patient and took the time to make sure I got exactly what I wanted from the signature she designed for me to use as a company logo. Highly recommended! – Nick Harris, Pixel Envy Ltd.
