Alice Young

Calligrapher & Designer

Alice is a GDC Certified Graphic Designer, with 20 years of experience in design and communications. She spent a decade working in the studios of multi-national ad agencies (Leo Burnett, Publicis, BBDO) in Toronto, Canada before moving to Canada's west coast in 2000. She continues to work on local, national and international accounts. The focus of her design work is typography and hand lettering.

Her love of letterforms carries through to her practice as a calligrapher and her work spans a broad range of applications – from commercial (logos and workmarks) to just-for-fun (greeting cards) – to exploratory fine art (asemic calligraphy on canvas).

Her calligraphic paintings on canvas have been exhibited and sold internationally. Along with fifty other international calligraphers, she recently participated in the International Exhibition of Calligraphy for 2015, held in Moscow, Russia at the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy.

Teaching on Skillshare allows her to reach around the world while staying at home with her small menagerie, and continuing to train her reactive rescue dog, “The Mighty Quinn”.
