This is how I usually look like in the web. Illustrated by yours truly.

Hello, there! I’m Sara Elisa, a Visual Designer currently transitioning to UX Design. I also happen to have a strong passion for Custom Lettering and Calligraphy.

On the professional side of things: I have worked in Sales, Translation, Tourism and Communication/Marketing. In 2018, in need of change and professional growth, I resigned from my wonderful job to travel and gain new perspective in life.

As an avid learner, I am now shifting my career to a field I have always been intuitively drawn to and that is User Experience Design/Product Design (however you call it). Since January 2019, I am taking courses that are leading me towards a new exciting path. 

My profound love for Oceans has made me an environmentally and health-conscious individual, therefore I would love to offer my knowledge and skills to companies and organizations that make a positive impact in the world, in terms of improving the human condition and our planet; companies that are in tune with my values and where I will be able to put my knowledge into action, learn and grow even more.

On the personal side of things: I am very much into personal development. Did I say I adore the Ocean and its marine creatures? I love to travel and explore the world, and to learn new things, always.

One thing I have nurtured somehow, since my childhood and throughout the years, was my passion for beautiful handwriting and that is: Calligraphy.

In 2005, I started practicing calligraphy by myself with manuals and books, it was my hobby so I could never focus on it too much. Fast-forward eight years and in 2013 I start taking online Lettering courses. Since 2015 I am a member of the Italian Calligraphers Guild (Associazione Calligrafica Italiana), a place where I train in and meet other fellow calligraphy lovers.
