Tonight, at 19:00 you don’t want to miss the awesome designing, writing, art-making, cycling, book-collecting, super great humans Christoffer & Kaisa Leka.
In this two-day comprehensive hands-on workshop participants will work on their own typeface in progress, and under the guidance of Christian Schwartz, evaluate the typeface and learn how to take it to completion.
Good type is a series of workshops with a focus on lettering design. Established in 2010 in Berlin and periodically organized in and out of Germany, it has already welcomed over 150 attendants who want to learn more about typography. Held by letterer and designer Martina Flor it is tailored for beginners as well as for those with previous experience who want to improve their techniques to draw letters.
From 19:00 tonight, the Buchstabenmuseum will be re-opened in their new location. The new space larger and significantly improved from their old spot at Alexanderplatz. Not too far away, they now have 350 square meters to show off their huge collection of old letters and signs.
Via Jürgen Siebert + the Creative Mornings Berlin Team:
For tomorrow’s Type Talk, we have a few places reserved for our friends of Creative Mornings Berlin. Our speaker(s) will be Heike Nehl and Sibylle Schlaich, founder of Moniteurs, one of Germany’s leading design bureaus. They will talk about the latest trends in Corporate and Information Design, including their updates on the orientation systems for Berlins new Airport BER.
Well … is there any bad news about this event, the 6th Type Talk in a row? Maybe that the presentation will be in German (but the slides are stupid simple to understand) … and that it’s the last Type Talk of this year (of course, we will continue in January 2014).
Please register today on the Apple Store Kurfürstendamm Homepage …
See you tomorrow at Kurfürstendamm 26.
If you aren’t familiar with the Berlin Typostammtisch quiz night, then I’m sorry. If it’s at all possible, you should come tomorrow night to Max und Moritz for the 40th Typostammtisch. This is the best meetup of the year… it’s not worth the time trying to convince you to come, just be there and have an awesome time and win cool prizes (everyone wins something), or don’t.
(It’s also the last Typostammtisch of the year.)

The workshop is based on the study of the Spencerian script, which was used in the United States during IXth century. This style, developed from the English Cursive, stands out for its delicately shaded lowercase and prominent capitals, with very intense shadows obtained with a special tool and a pointed pen.
