Suzie McKig is a graphic designer, entrepreneur, and founder of Ink.Academy, the world's first international calligraphy school. Suzie fell in love with calligraphy as co-owner and creative director of Twig & Fig, a luxury invitation design company. Working closely with wonderful calligraphers over the years sparked her own passion to learn. Seeking out a structured resource for an ongoing calligraphy education, she thirsted for more in-depth study than weekend workshops and annual conferences, so she founded her own school.
Based in Berkeley, California, Ink.Academy is accessible internationally through a sophisticated, rigorous online program. Among its offerings is a Master Certification Program in Penmanship with Master Penman Michael Sull at the lead. The school will offer many online courses, retreats, and in-person workshops. Ink.Academy has a wider vision not only to educate but to fully support calligraphers — with business and marketing skills, technical skills, and a jobs resource board.
