CALLIGRAPHY KATRINA is a calligraphy firm established in 2007 by its highly artistic and talented founder, Katrina Centeno-Nguyen. At the age of 19, she was asked by a friend to address her wedding envelopes. With a humble beginning of $10, Katrina bought a pen and a pack of envelopes for samples to start her first project. After a couple more jobs, she landed a very encouraging write-up in the famous wedding blog, Project Wedding. Immediately, her natural speed, innate writing skills, and meticulous, yet upbeat personality was noticed by Los Angeles’ luxury wedding industry, museums, and the world’s top fashion houses including Vogue, Dior, Ferragamo, Chanel, Burberry, Vanity Fair, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art to name a few. In less than 2 years, at a relatively young age of 21, Katrina's distinctive calligraphic styles have become a byword synonymous to luxury, class, and couture.
With CALLIGRAPHY KATRINA's rapidly growing prominent clientele, Katrina’s work can also be found in numerous online blogs and magazines such as Vogue, Insider, UNILAD, Bored Panda, VoyageLA, Style Me Pretty, The Knot, Martha Stewart Weddings, Inside Weddings, California Wedding Day, and more!
Because Katrina never formally learned calligraphy and as all of her font styles are her own design, the speed with which Katrina’s projects are completed is by itself a force to reckon with. This ability makes her and her work unique and highly sought-after. In addition, her growing knowledge of her craft, plus her excellent customer service skills make it a most pleasurable experience working with her.
“My providence is pretty boring. This is how I wrote since I was a child. All of my work is an evolution as I progress as an artist. I feel all artists should do the same and should always keep learning.”
