My name is Maria Montes and I am a graphic, textile designer, letterer and calligraphic aficionada.
I learnt calligraphy for the first time in 1996. After a long break working as a full time Graphic Designer, I went back to study calligraphy, typography and typeface design in Barcelona and New York City.
I am also the co-founder of my own design label called MarchTwentyTwo, a collaborative project focused on limited edition scarves and art prints. I use my own label to develop personal projects and marry my love for lettering and calligraphy with my passion for typography and illustration.
My work is generally intricate: typography and colour play an important role in my design approach. You can have a look at my website for several examples of my work and also read an extensive biography about my professional trajectory in the about section.
