Next weekend, April 20 & 21st, Alexei Vanyashin will present an intensive 2 day workshop on Cyrillic type design here in Berlin. At only €90 for the two days, the workshop is a real bargain. But space is limited to only 8 people, so good luck getting a spot!

From Mota Italic:
Our exhibition/project for January and February was a look at Rob’s process of type design. In Progress shows the steps, iterations, and methodologies of how this specific project unfolded.
This Saturday, Feb 23rd we will celebrate the conclusion of In Progress with a Finissage and Fip font release party. Come by, check out how far the project progressed, and toast with some wine to the release of this new font family!
We’ll also be holding a drawing for fonts during the party. Everyone wins something: either free fonts or huge discounts!
The party will be 6-10pm.
