Jean François Porchez, one of the most prominent type designers and founder of Typofonderie held a two-day workshop in Zagreb. We couldn't pass up this rare opportunity so we sent Ana for a bit of professional development ;)
In two days of intense work they covered the transition of the letter form from the basic calligraphy pen move to shaping the final letter look with defined type style. Everyone started working with the lowercase serifs with attention to negative space, contrast, right proportion and endings in the letter. By defining the character of certain letters attendants were able to transform it to the whole alphabet and got to see the unique language a font reveals.
Many thanks to dizajn.hr for the opportunity and of course Jean François Porchez for dedicating his time and knowledge to every attendant with great passion and understanding!
