In celebration of hitting my 1,000 follower milestone on Instagram, I'm doing an artist feature series! This is part 3 of 3.
I'm pleased to introduce you to my calligra-bestie...
Margoux - @moderninkco
Who are you? Tell us a bit about yourself.
I'm Margoux, the person behind Modern Ink Co. I live in BC, Canada and I'm obsessed with lettering.
Which Instagram accounts inspire you, and why?
[There are] so many! I love Taylor of @tjcalligraphy, Melarie of @mauvepaperco, Lindsey of @bareinkco, Silvie of @viacalligraphy and, most definitely, Paige of @hey.halle. All of these ladies have their unique styles and that's enough reason for me to love and [be inspired by them]!
What helps inspire you when you're not feeling motivated to create?
I think getting off my phone and just going out for a walk makes all the difference. Nature just does that to you 90% of the time.
What is your go-to pen?
My day one pens are the Uni-Ball Vision Rollerball point 0.7 in black and [the] Tombow Fudenosuke in hard-tip black.
Describe your lettering style.
I have a very chic and simple type of lettering style. [It's] something that reflects my personality.
What makes you unique? Why should people follow you?
I'm all about simplicity and minimalism, though I'm not afraid to go out of my comfort zone. I take new styles and trying different things as part of the learning process in this journey.
Where can we find you on social media?
