Practice different forms of precise and expressive lettering with Jack Rogers, Graphic Designer.
Information from the workshop leader:
“The workshop will have focus on typography and in particular hand rendered lettering. This is a huge subject and can cover anything from rigid letter press to free style graffiti. I will give a brief history and outline of typography and its various different artistic and commercial applications, then engage the participants in a number of activities that will teach them the proper language and terms used within type setting as well as encouraging them to explore the possibilities of hand rendered typography. I will encourage the participants to practice some precise calligraphic letting as well as some more messy expressive lettering using a variety of tools. I will then set an open task that enables them to explore and practice their chosen method or methods of lettering.
Participants are encouraged to have in mind a favourite word, quote or some song lyrics (1 or 2 lines max) they would like to use to create some typographic artwork.”
Jack Rogers is a graphic designer with an interest in typography living and working in Plymouth, UK.
