Typism Gold Coast Workshops: September 28–29
We have organised two days of hands-on workshops with Typism speakers past and present. All workshops run from 2 pm until 6 pm and will be held at Griffith University on the Gold Coast.
All materials are supplied and the classes kept deliberately small so you get plenty of hands-on tuition from your workshop presenter.
Tickets are ($67 / $47) and you can take one workshop on Thursday and one on Friday.
Learn how to create a custom brush pen logo with this hands-on signature-style logo workshop.
As computers become generic and fonts overused, there is a resurgence in the popularity of unique custom lettering logos. Coca Cola and Disney’s hand-lettered logos have stood the test of time because they’re unique and reflect the personality of the brand.
For beginners and experienced letterers alike, this four-hour class will cover the foundations of building muscle-memory using pencil, before creating a logo using brush pens.
You’ll leave the workshop with:
- An understanding of why custom logo designs are important in a digital age.
- Improved brush pen skills and a variety of styles and techniques to try with the one pen
- A signature-style logo for yourself, ready for vectoring.
Gold Coast designer Matt Vergotis is known to ‘froth’ about three things: surfing, his daughters, and creating customised logos and branding for clients around the world. His brush lettering videos have been viewed on YouTube thousands of times and he is a hero to “lefty” lettering artists all over the world.
