Gemeinsam mit Amichai Green vom Jüdischen Museum, lernten die TeilnehmerInnen, hebräische Buchstaben mit einer Feder zu schreiben und damit Duktus und Schönheit der hebräischen Kalligrafie kennenzulernen.

Happenings at TYPO – Feel The Rhythm

Us is a de-centralized design collective that explores non-traditional methods of process and collaboration. In response to this year’s theme of rhythm, they have set up an interactive workshop where conference attendees generate hand crafted poster art by working within (and against) established parameters, taking inspiration from the elements provided while exercising creative liberty to remix and re-imagine.
