Hello everyone, I’m Joanna from Quirky by Design, but all my friends call me Jo, so please, just Jo.I’m so...
Jo's love for calligraphy stemmed from her grandfather who taught her cursive at the age of 7. Till this day Grandpa Chia is fondly remembered for his beautiful penmanship and penchant for sneaking chocolate treats to the grandkids. After working as an engineering researcher and obtaining her doctorate in 2015, Joanna took a plunge of faith and ventured into the world of art and calligraphy. Having honed her skills under the tutelage of international Master Penmen and renowned calligraphers, today her calligraphy has graced corporate branding, logos, events, weddings and has steadily built a client portfolio of international and local brands. In her spare time, she teaches calligraphy to both adults and children.
She has been featured in various publications, including Harper's Bazaar, CLEO, Elle and is one of Malaysia's Top 10 Calligraphers (Tallypress). Jo also appeared on NTV 7's Bella, where she got to chatter excitedly about her passion for letters and mission in reviving this long forgotten art. She believes that even as we live in an ever exciting digital world, there is something magical and transcendental about transferring thoughts unto paper, of encapsulating personal messages in handwriting, something uniquely intimate to each individual. If you would like to get in touch for event and private session bookings, she'd love to hear from you at [email protected]
