Lettering is not calligraphy, but rather illustrated type. Good thing, because this elective is not about perfection, it’s about communication. Once you add concept and texture to letterforms, it adds a level of meaning to your work.
Dimensional type will reinforce the meaning of the word with an illustrative and human touch. It’s a unique skill to learn and possess, one that requires knowledge of both illustration and typography.
This is the second version of Letter Better with new approaches to lettering with Ana Gomez Bernaus.
We’ll train you to defend yourself against the likes of bad design habits by rapidly recognizing type categories, characteristics and choosing faces to improve readability. And then: spacing, tracking and kerning shortcuts happen in an instant. You’ll respond to and instantly take down unbalanced kerning. Without realizing it, you’ve maneuvered expert type handling and styles document-wide like it’s second nature.
In the intermediate level session of this two-day workshop, you’ll a step further than the typical calligraphy class by designing and composing a customized calligraphic title for a book cover from pen to finished digitized artwork. See the beginning level session.
