About

Where naughty curse words meet beautiful calligraphy

Hi, I'm Shinah, the designer, calligrapher, and maker behind Crooked Calligraphy and I prefer a little edge with my sweet ;)

I created Crooked Calligraphy for those who appreciate a little snarky juxtaposition. Those who know that life ain't all sugar and aren't afraid to be honest about it.

Who am I? I spent my entire life on the straight, "proper" path. I went to Hahhh-vard University, then NYU Law School, then worked my butt off as a corporate attorney for a big international law firm.

But, after one too many days of uninspiring work and nights of sleeping under my desk, I decided I wanted to reclaim my life! I quit my job and explored so many creative avenues - knitting, woodworking, drawing, graphic design. But CALLIGRAPHY is what I've fallen in love with.

This path of finding myself has not been easy. It's been rough and CROOKED. I needed plenty of inspiration along the way, but the usual sugary, sincere stuff about beauty and dreams didn't reflect what I was really feeling.

So I created a line of greeting cards and prints that combine pretty calligraphy and dirty curse words - perfect for expressing your true feelings! Every item in my shop is designed and hand-made with love (and a little snark) and nothing makes me happier than a happy customer.

Want something custom-made? Contact me and let's set some shit up!
