Hugo Hoppmann and me are giving a two day workshop during the VOID conference (11.–15.01.2013) in Düsseldorf, Germany.
“One of the luxuries coming along with graphic design is that we can create and apply own material. By designing a typeface one takes a snapshot of his environment and extends the role of a computer operator into one of an observer and creator. The shape of a typeface carries a statement within and consequently creates the connection between a graphical language and its author. While software enables us to produce shapes more specific then ever, the basic ideas remain the same.
During our workshop we will construct, test and manipulate self-made drawing tools by hand. We will adjust them precisely to our needs and develop them further in response to their visual output. This way we can investigate how a design method for a tool becomes visible at its execution. Those observations can serve as starting points for a digital typeface production later on.”
