Introduction to Sign Painting: Casual Letters
This workshop will focus on the Casual Letter style, also known as single stroke or speed stroke, which is one of the most popular among sign painters today.
In this two-day introductory workshop students learn the basics of flat-edged brush writing with stroke by stroke instruction for the construction of each letter of the alphabet as well as numerals. Emphasis will also be on writing words with good letter and word spacing an special attention to the relationship of the “white space”.
No prior brush lettering experience is required. Handouts will be provided with the basic construction.
A workshop offered by Type@Cooper West, a collaboration between Letterform Archive and Cooper Union, and held in the Monotype Classroom at Letterform Archive.
