Workshop Description

Once one masters the ductus and has a thorough understanding of the structure of letterforms, we need to make them our own. This class will explore ways of looking at letters in a more abstract way while moving away from the rigidity of writing between two lines. The goal of this class is to develop a fresh and unique style based on your own existing style. • Writing common groups of letters, both upper and lowercase in skeletal form. • Looking at the length, angle and position of each stroke and their relationship to one another and how they can be altered for effect. • Analysing the counter and exterior spaces of each letter and positioning ensuing letters accordingly. • Exploring how far the strokes can be pushed and the extremes of letter design without losing clarity. • Looking at how they change when weight is added, and different tools are used. • Designing whole alphabets and assembling words to make unique and expressive designs.
