About Maria: 

My name is Maria Montes and I am a Melbourne based designer, illustrator and letterer.

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.

My work is generally intricate: letterforms 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.
