Serebro Nabora 2016 workshop: Letterpress Light

Workshop by Joey Hannaford and Jeff Pulaski in Moscow, Russia.
What Education, Typography
When Sep 30, 2016 from 10:00 AM to 05:30 PM

In today’s world of digital fonts, digital layouts and e-publishing, designers are increasingly removed from physically handling the objects they design. While this is becoming more and more true of books, ads, brochures and other printed ephemera, it has long been the case with typographic design. We think this is part of the reason for the current popularity of letterpress in design circles. Letterpress printing deals with physical typographic objects and allows designers to touch and feel the objects they work with on a daily basis.

This workshop is for participants to get a brief feel for letterpress printing. In the workshop, participants can handle letterforms and work together to create typographic compositions. We will use a limited set of wood type, cut paper and acrylic letterforms in latin and cyrilic scripts. In this guided workshop, participants will “print” with raised letterforms to create typographic experiments using stamping and rubbing techniques that mimic normal letterpress. This workshop will be completely experimental, allowing designers to push the boundaries of typographic form in new ways and in the process discover more expressive solutions to typographic problems.
