We’re hiring at Laura Hooper Calligraphy!! 

We believe in sharing this beautiful art form with the world & are in need of a top-notch self-starter to join in the daily tasks of what it takes to run a thriving calligraphy business. Not a skilled calligrapher? No problem! This position is an office support role with no calligraphy involved. If you fit the bill below, we can’t wait to hear from you.


Laura Hooper Calligraphy is a one-stop shop for all things calligraphy: We provide calligraphy & stationery services, we teach calligraphy lessons both in person and online, and we sell calligraphy supplies.


This position is part-time, requiring 10-20 hours per week during normal business hours {9am-6pm}, with the potential to go full-time, at our studio in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. The role is a unique and exciting one for our growing company, inviting an opportunity to wear several spiffy hats:

  • PRODUCER: You will develop programming for our YouTube channel, schedule video shoots and ensure that our content gets out into the world.
  • VIDEOGRAPHER: You will shoot iPhone videos for our Instagram feed and Stories that fulfill our vision of a world made more eye-catching by beautiful calligraphy.
  • OFFICE COORDINATOR: You will ensure that our studio is a well-oiled machine, keeping it organized and tidy, packaging online orders and invitation commissions, dispatching shipments at USPS and UPS and expediting pickups and deliveries.


  • You are fluent in both YouTube and iMovie {or want to be & know that Google can teach you}.
  • You’ve never met an Instagram Story you couldn’t masterfully caption, tag and gif.
  • You are a self-starter with a curious mind, particularly when it comes to research and problem solving. Google is your co-pilot.
  • Your favorite part about holiday season is THE GIFT WRAPPING, and the thought of bringing your gift wrapping artistry to your day-to-day has you reaching for your personal stash of silk ribbon.
  • You’ve been told that your positivity is infectiousness.
  • You see organization as a way of life, not just as a means to an end. Binder dividers, labelmakers and a top-notch filing system are as energizing as your AM cup of coffee.
  • Your creativity takes a myriad of forms, be it your knack for coming up with innovative solutions to logistical challenges, or your artist’s mind.
  • You eat those aforementioned logistical challenges for breakfast, and you take pride in your work. And speaking of breakfast, you aren’t averse to making a bagel run every now and then.
  • You improvise. You go with the flow. You move effortlessly between working independently, collaborating, following instruction and taking initiative.
  • Your written and verbal communication skills are stellar. We could easily see ourselves printing and framing any of your emails — they’re that good — and our clients and vendors adore working with you.


  • Bachelor’s degree received or in progress
  • At least 1 year experience in an office setting
  • Proficient in Instagram, Instagram stories, YouTube, iMovie
  • Experience with task management program such as Asana or Basecamp, or willingness to learn.
  • Ability to work out of our Old Town Alexandria, Virginia studio. This is not a remote position.
