USC Lecture: Calligraphy & Hand Lettering

Back in April I had the opportunity to give a lecture at USC's Roski School of Fine Arts. The subject was calligraphy and hand lettering with a slant toward graphic designers who aim to incorporate handmade type into their digital work. Unlike other lectures and workshops I've led in the past, given this audience, I was able to go beyond the paper realm and delve into the nitty gritty details of digitizing hand lettering, answering all the geeky questions about bΓ©zier curves and pixel depth the students could throw at me. It was so much fun to meet a room full of young designers who approach their design work from wildly different angles but have a common love of all things typography.
