Monogram Design

By Barry Morentz

Starting Date : 17 Sept 2022

Fees : HK$ 740 or US$ 95

Workshop Description

In this workshop we will celebrate the power of the pen and our imaginations to create dazzling calligrams. These pinwheel-like monograms are produced by rotating a letter any number of times, and incorporates fundamental principles of graphic design.

After we become comfortable with the concept and with working on layers of tracing paper, we proceed to work with two letters in combination. The result is a more complex, sometimes abstract design. We’ll then extract a part of the image to form a border to encase the monogram, to make a completely organic design. And finally, we’ll consider a range of decorative possibilities that can be applied by hand to the printed design.
