Gothic hand lettering
Hand drawn lettering
Hi, my name is Oriol Miró i Genovart (omg). I am Barcelona-based freelance calligrapher since 1994, more than 20 years now. My work includes collaborations and commissions for advertising agencies, graphic designers, museums, television, networks and publishing companies. I also love private commissions, unique calligraphy pieces meant to decorate any interior design.
I teach in several Barcelona universities and private schools: calligraphy teacher at Escola Elisava (UPF) since 1995, typography teacher at Escola Idep since 2006 and calligraphy teacher in the Master’s in Advanced Typography at Escola Eina (UAB) since 2008. Also, since 2015 I am head coordinator and teacher in the Annual Course of Calligraphy at Escola Visions in Barcelona.
Since 2008, and twice a year, I run my own calligraphy intensive courses at Santuari dels Àngels in Girona.
As a graphic design student, one of our subjects was Calligraphy. I fell in love with it and decided to be a calligrapher for the rest of my life. My obsessions are letters, countershapes, papers, brushes and all kind of pens. Time flies away on a good day, these days when I can stay at the studio working for hours and hours. My passion is calligraphy, I cannot conceive a single day without writing letters.
