Uniting Nerds through Typography

TYPO Berlin 2012, 19.05.2012, 19:00 Uhr (TYPO Hall)

Jessica Hische makes a living with something special: she is a letterer. Whereas graphic designers increasingly focus on type, only few understand and appreciate the difference between lettering, calligraphy and type design, i.e. what separates the wheat from the chaff in the world of letters. In her presentation Jessica Hische will explain, how she accidentally found her way into lettering, and she will inspire her audience. So that everybody will rush home and start working on his/her own projects.
