sarah kim lettering + design

Hello! My name is Sarah Kim.

I picked up my first nib in 2013 and haven't been able to stop writing since. I enjoy using calligraphy and lettering to create pieces in celebration of different occasions and people. My faith and scripture inspires my work, and I aim to encourage others through the joy I receive from Jesus Christ.

When I am not freelancing, I work as a biomedical communicator in a strategic design consultancy. I use my background in science, anatomy, and communication to synthesize complex information to tell compelling narratives in clear and beautiful ways. I received my MScBMC from the University of Toronto in 2016 and my BSc in Biology and Psychology from McMaster University in 2013.

    Other Facts:

    1. I'm an ENFJ. Apparently that means I'm overly idealistic and a little too sensitive ;) 
    2. Nothing beats cheese, from cheesy jokes to cheesy pasta. I'm thinking of naming my first daughter Brie.  
    3. I am almost always in the mood for '80s rock. 
    4. I've watched every season of the Bachelor, Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad, and Bachelor in Paradise since it aired in 2002. 
    5. I am self-diagnosed with a subset of trypophobia... *shudders*
    6. I worked four years in an anatomy lab preparing human cadavers. Nothing scares me now! 
    7. My ideal date: walking hand-in-hand with my hubby, exploring new streets with a camera and a sweet drink.
    8. I don't want to stay in Toronto forever but I don't know where I'll go yet.
