Digitize writing through drawing: Join this workshop where you will learn the basics of putting the written letter on to your keyboard, and making your own typeface.
Online Class: Draw & Digitize
Thursdays from 28th September to 19th October, 19:30–21:00 CET
Calligraphy, lettering, typography. Three separate disciplines? No. The same? No. Overlapping? Yes.
After teaching drawn type design and typography for graphic designers, as well as drawing letters for over thirty years, I have finally taken the step into the world of digital typography, fulfilling an old dream of mine. In this workshop you will learn the basics of putting the written letter on to your keyboard, and making your own typeface. We will draw letters with a pencil, looking at typographic detailing vs underlying form. A few simple drawings will be used as a starting point from which to make a typeface.
