I’m Sydnie and I’m the ghoul behind Minerva’s Mark. I have been practicing the craft of modern calligraphy for 2 over years, but have recently fallen for older styles. From bold gothic scripts like fraktur to the whimsical titling and card scripts of the 1920’s & 30’s, I am always excited to learn older artforms to bring them back into the spotlight.
While I do have a full time job as a Project Manager, taking the time to be creative, look away from a screen and just put ink on paper helps me destress during these crazy days. As a multiple generator Gemini, if I am not busy, I am not at my best!
Instead of letting my artwork sit in folders around my desk, I love to be inspired by others and help them connect with and astound the people that are important in their lives, whether that be customers or distant cousins.
“My logo is essential to my business. When I advertise my photos, there needs to be a consistent brand to back that up. Through Sydnie's handiwork, patience, personality, and creative eye, I now have a bold, feminine logo that represents me and my brand. Don't settle for cookie cutter. Don't settle for run-of-the-mill. Don't settle for okay. Support a woman-owned calligraphy business and get extraordinary lettering in return. If you want to stand out, hire Sydnie. if you want a fresh, unique, true-to-you logo, sign, stationery, or anything under the sun: Hire Sydnie.”
