Bas Jacobs (Underware): Keep It Straight– One Day Workshop
Tuesday, June 5, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM (EDT)
If you think you've got enough energy to be part of this internet-free ants' nest for one day, you'll experience that type design can be a thrilling experience if everybody kicks the same ass. We're gonna make 1 font together, and that can be as electrifying as Sylvester Stallone in a B-movie. Especially when there are 20 captains on board and when the real KISS principle will be executed: Keep It Straight, Stupid.
Requirements (What to bring)
Some scissors and pens/pencils. But mostly: put on old clothes!
