Type Camp 2012 Days 3 & 4
Applying what they learned during the first few days of the workshop, campers dedicated the remainder of the week to the final project: developing a stencil lettering system. The first day centered around drawing test letters for a number of potential directions, before it was time to expand and refine final character sets.

The following day was reserved for transferring outlines to templates and cutting stencils. Campers produced test specimens with a focus on standardizing aspects such as letterform duplication, alignment and spacing. The results of the workshop demonstrate a broad range of solutions, all capitalizing on the flexibility of the stencil letter.
