UmmeSalama Mustafa

UmmeSalama is a graphic designer and calligrapher with an immense love for typography, people, and adventure. In UmmeSalama’s eyes, creativity used to solve a problem makes the best design. Her goal is to convey a message or a story through a very real, practical use of art.
She is a visual designer and calligrapher from Sri Lanka. Apart from her 10+ years in advertising, calligraphy, and a love for letters have been childhood passions; ones she’s eager to share. Through pop-up workshops, online classes, and private tutoring, she has taught over 100 students, both junior and senior alike.

She launched It’sMyType Sri Lanka in August 2016; a hand-lettering and calligraphy community, conducting over five workshops with more than forty-five students. Her work has encouraged the widespread adoption of modern calligraphy and hand-lettering in Sri Lanka, conducting workshops and undertaking various projects for a range of clients.

Teaching Philosophy & Approach

I believe that anyone can learn anything, but everyone learns differently. We all have different skill levels and individual talents, and with that, a unique perspective to offer. My approach to teaching requires individual focus on each student. I learn about them before I teach them, and that allows me to bring out their strengths while working on their weaknesses. I feel that with this approach, the student stays more confident and interested in what they are learning.

I believe that anyone can learn anything, but everyone learns differently.
