Workshop – Hand Lettering with Gemma O’Brien

On the final day of her solo exhibition Graveyard Shift, Gemma O’Brien will be hosting a workshop that will give participants insight into the hand-drawn processes she uses to create unique lettering pieces.  Hand-lettering is an invaluable tool for designers today that allows flexibility, freedom, customisation that often is inhibited by working solely with fonts in a digital space. This class will give an overview of the differences between writing, lettering and typography before moving into a series of short exercises to demonstrate key principles of letter construction, rhythm, contrast, composition, balance and techniques of letter customisation (swashes, flourishes, decoration). Using calligraphic principles as a starting point participants will spend the second part of the day conceptualising, drawing and refining a custom piece of hand-lettering under Gemma’s instruction.
