Calligraphy in Cornwall samples by john Knight

Welcome to Calligraphy in Cornwall

The Calligraphy website of John Knight
The art of calligraphy introduces an individual and unique quality to private commissions and commercial design. The calligraphers' creative skills explore the expressive qualities of text, colour and illustration, producing work for individuals, corporate and commemorative briefs. Whether it's a greetings card, a certificate, a personal poem or favourite quote, a commemorative role of honour or a logo for an organisation or corporate identity

It is something really special to receive a precious piece of uniquely produced calligraphic art as a one-off creation, coming directly from the hand of the artist. It communicates that someone really cares in a way that printed or computer generated words cannot.

Another aspect is the vast array of materials, colours and textures of papers that can be written upon including natural vellum and parchments of almost any thickness, size and weight. Imagine the pleasure of receiving a greetings card with your name beautifully hand lettered on the front in pure 24 carat burnished GOLD!

And also for commercial use...

With almost everthing in graphic design being produced on computers these days, using just about every font style accessible by everyone, it is even more important to give companies and products an individual and unique identity. A calligraphy based design can achieve that.
