Vita & References

In Short

My name is Stefanie Weigele, I am a calligrapher, graphic designer and author in Potsdam (close to Berlin, Germany) and have been working in the creative industry for over 20 years.

I grew up in Stuttgart and studied graphic design at the Univerity of Arts Bremen in the 1990s. After my diploma (in which handlettering played a major role, by the way) I worked in Bremen and since 2001 in Berlin as an art director and illustrator. I published regularly in the newspaper taz and various magazines, and realized free projects with hand screen printing together with other illustrators. Based on this work, I increasingly engaged in calligraphy and constantly educated myself.

Today I am one of the few calligraphers specializing in classic pointed pen calligraphy in Germany. I write and design for clients such as Brigitte, Lacoste, C&A, Salon Magazine, UNESCO or Ted Baker London. In 2019, I was a speaker at the Berlin Letters Festival, where I also teached a Workshop on flourishing. I participated in a TV feature for Arte on the topic of »The Value of Handwriting«, give numerous calligraphy workshops and am the author of an extensive 240 pages book about pointed pen calligraphy.
