Lettering workshop by @martinaflor
Lettering vs Calligraphy is a project by Giuseppe Salerno and Martina Flor. It consists of a visual dialogue between a letterer and a calligrapher, where they draw/write a letter responding to a keyword given by a moderator. The adventure aims to explore the capabilities of the two technical approaches. It delivers one letter daily and takes place online, where the visitors are invited to vote for their favorite.

House Industries’ lead letterer Ken Barber will conduct a two-day workshop exploring the creative process of hand-lettering and the application of illustrative letterforms in contemporary graphic design. Sharing some of the studio’s best-kept secrets, Ken will introduce participants to letter-drawing basics, various production techniques utilized to create sophisticated letterforms, and an instructional demonstration on how to digitize and vectorize analog lettering. Participants will take what they’ve learned and apply these hands-on techniques to design their own custom wordmarks.
