with Ivan Castro in Tokyo!

Saturday 30th of June 2018
(Limited to 12 participants!)

In this practical workshop, we’ll learn how to approach a script lettering piece, from the first sketch to the final work. After practicing the foundations of brush-written calligraphy and through slide presentations and demonstrations, we’ll see the basics of lettering, sketching techniques, the logic of rhythm, composition and all that technical stuff that make a difference. We’ll also see the different ways of starting a script lettering work, and everyone will get to do their own project that will consist of a logotype or a short sentence, with the help of the personal tuition of the instructor .
