Letter Together

with Jessica Hische

Sat., Nov. 07 – Sun., Nov. 08, 2015
10:00AM – 5:00PM
location: Letterform Archive Reading Room

In this two-day intensive workshop, students will work collaboratively to create a full vector alphabet by the end of the weekend. On day one, we work entirely analog, talking about the design of letters and best practices for sketching. On day two, we work entirely digitally and concentrate on plotting vector points like a pro and creating beautiful bezier curves. This is a great workshop for beginning to intermediate level letterers that want to learn a lot about drawing type in a short amount of time. Participants must bring their own laptop with Adobe Illustrator installed. If you use a mouse or wacom tablet for vector drawing, bring that as well.

Analog drawing materials will be provided for this workshop by the instructor

Required Materials Include:
  • laptop with adobe illustrator installed
  • any mouse / wacom you use normally
  • Please bring $20 cash materials fee

Join the waiting list…
