YLVA SKARP, calligraphy artist, is the designer behind the stunning FRENCHBYDESIGN logo and banner.
Some elements may be a bit unexpected, but I can’t stand perfection – things need to be a little irregular,” says Ylva.

Educated at Roehampton Institute in London, YLVA SKARP has worked 15 years as a professional calligraphy artist and designer. Using calligraphy to form images from words, she mixes the modern with the traditional to create unique pieces for the contemporary home. Leksand, a small town in central Sweden, is where Ylva calls home, yet this Swedish artist’s designs have long been global, with representation in both Europe and the USA. Despite this international presence, Ylva places great value on her work being and remaining 100 percent Swedish.

 

 

Sandra Fazzino Contributor SANDRA FAZZINO is a lifestyle portrait and wedding photographer based in the San Francisco bay area, although her routes lead her back to Italy and the northern east coast often. While studying for her BFA in advertising photography at the acclaimed Rochester Institute of Technology, she struggled to find her voice behind the lens. Setting the camera down for several years, she began a career as a photo producer managing large commercial photo shoots for clients such as Nike, Safeway, Dell and AT&T to name a few. Eventually, out of frustration and desire to connect meaningfully with others, she started her business and has never felt so impassioned photographing love in all its splendor, savoring it, keeping it still, so that fleeting moments may be cherished for generations to come.
