I'm Nika and I'm the Calligraphette of C & Co.
Having spent almost two of the last ten years traveling and living abroad, I pull inspiration from the landscapes, architecture, and art from Paris to Tibet. This gives me a unique design aesthetic, not inspired simply by trends in the wedding industry. I feel a deep pull to the different aesthetics that my clients come to me with and love nothing more than helping them (you!) discover just how exciting it can be to design custom invitations.
My love for calligraphy and all things paper comes from my grandfather. He gave me my first fountain pen when I was in my early teens, and I remember always flipping through his collection of leather bound, marbled books when I would visit. Largely because of this, I draw inspiration for my different calligraphy styles from old, European handwriting.
With a modern touch, of course!
I'm very proud of the fact that I've never had a client who didn't feel like a friend by the end of our time working together. And, that within the two years of starting Calligraphette & Co., my work has been published in Magnolia Rouge, The Knot DC, Modern Luxury Weddings Washington, Hey Wedding Lady, Borrowed & Blue, Aisle Society, etc.
