Ritika Mazumdar, 27 Lettering artist
Besides working as an art director with a creative agency, Mazumdar specialises in hand lettering—also defined as the art of drawing letters—a skill that helps personalise gift items
Mazumdar, an alumna of Mudra Institute of Communications, Ahmedabad, learned the art of lettering recently. She enrolled herself for a class on the basics of calligraphy, modern calligraphy and lettering. Then, about a year ago, she started a page called Looping Letters on Instagram. The idea was to create awareness about this niche art. Soon, she found herself doing calligraphy on postcards, diaries and cards among other gifting items. She breaks down letter forms in the typography into their shapes, flourishes, and textures.
Recommended by: Siddhi Yadav, executive creative director, Art, at McCann Worldgroup, Mumbai, says, "Ritika lettered a customised quote I wanted to gift a friend. We ideated and created the concept together and it turned out as per expectations. We got it framed and my friend loved it."
Available for: Lettering on postcards, diaries, invitation cards, greeting cards, fall hangings, photo frames, coasters, wood, etc.
Charges: Rs 1,000 onwards
