Through a combination of lectures, group exercises, independent work and feedback sessions, the participants will design a Cyrillic extension to their own Latin fonts. The mentors will provide an in-depth look into history, writing, calligraphy and the contemporary state of the Cyrillic script in order to develop an understanding of the basic structure of letterforms. Focusing on the common approaches for designing Cyrillic, this workshop will provide a well structured knowledge on the logic behind the key letters of the script.

Besides the basic Cyrillic, participants will be paying attention to the country-specific alternatives. The mentors will share with the participants the research on the extended Cyrillic — not only Bulgarian and Serbian localised forms, but a huge amount of mysterious letters that are being used in hidden parts of Russia and in many of the post-Soviet countries.
