Type Camp 2012, Day 2
On the second day of camp, participants took a break from developing their prospective type systems by loosening up with a little hand-lettering. While lettering involves drawing a prescribed set of forms within a fixed sequence, typeface design requires standardizing the reproduction and spacing of letters whose order is liable to change. Not only did the day’s exercise offer a different perspective on the relationships that letterforms can share, but it offered campers a practical glimpse into the strengths and weaknesses of both disciplines.
