Experimental Calligraphy
June 11–13,2021
Mestni muzej Ljubljana

In June 2021, we organized a workshop with Tipo Brda society and Dutch calligrapher and lettering artist Guido de Boer. The event took place at the City Museum of Ljubljana, Slovenia. This three-day experimental calligraphy workshop introduced the participants to new ways and ideas on how to start or upgrade their calligraphy skills. The first part of the workshop was dedicated to the traditional form of calligraphy writing, later we explored and learned about new approaches and tools for experimenting and expressive writing. The final result was a group collective zine, everyone contributed their alphabet they designed during different calligraphy games..

Online International Summer School 2020 UL ALUO Type Design with Gerry Leonidas
August 20–24, 2020
Online workshop was organized by UL ALUO,
with help from Type Salon and Tipo Brda, coordinated by Domen Fras.

The online course begins with an understanding of type genres and helps participants conceptualize typefaces and plan typeface families. It introduces writing, sculpting, and synthetic methodologies for style consistency. Systematic development across styles and optical sizes is supported with workflow examples and test documents. Beginning participants will develop with a clear understanding of typeface design spaces, and develop skills for translating their sketches into workable fonts that can be used to typeset test documents. Experienced participants will be able to refine their designs, understand how to position typefaces for specific markets, and explore originality and identity within realistic briefs. The material used in the course can be documented, shared, and re-used.

PLECNIK TYPEFACE – Plecnik House Ljubljana, 2021
plecnik

Plecnik typeface,
designed on the basis of hand drawn letters by Jože Plečnik from the archive collection

Plecnik House Ljubljana
July 2–October 17, 2021

Plecnik is a typeface, designed on the basis of research of the archive collection of hand drawn letters by Jože Plečnik. The most renowned Slovene architect is best known for his architectural works, but his influence on Slovene typography is somewhat less accentuated. From the initial architectural plan to the final details on the building, Plečnik planned his projects in a holistic and careful manner; which follow a unified concept and create a thoughtfully designed finished whole. Inscriptions on monuments, book typesetting, book covers, architectural plan elements, ex-librises, additions in the form of ornaments, initials – these are also among Plečnik’s prolific works, which had a strong influence on Slovene typography.

The exhibition showcases the research and development of the Plecnik typface. Typeface and Plecnik booklet are available in our shop.
