A collection of insightful material I created and gathered over the last few years.
Online Lettering Workshop
in German language
A list of online lettering workshop material I created over the last few years. An invitation to play with letter forms and to find a personal voice designing them.
At first, they were published at the blog of the publisher Red Bug Books. The posts describe the basics of letter design and furthermore more personal perspectives on letter design (like a special tour through experimental blackletter type). A translation into English will follow.
Also listening is a part of learning. Therefore I was interested in people, who have something to say about type.
