A type workshop about the manual pixelism
Say goodbye for the digital pixels - be natural, be a true craftsman!
A typeworkshop hold by Underware at Ecole cantonale d'art de Lausanne, Switzerland. The workshop runs from the 24th till the 28th of January 2005 in Lausanne.
The assignment in brief
Search for an interesting shape that works well as a repeated module for a 'pixel font'. This one module/shape can be anything, 2 or 3 dimensional, geometric or non-geometric. Collect lots of these modules and start sketching your alphabet. Do not stick to a geometric grid. Judge the position of the modules with your own eye. Once you have defined your alphabet, go and apply your font into a manual, physical environment.
