We Love to Learn
We have a Craving to Create
and a Desire to Inspire!
It’s already april and we’ve had several ideas on this years theme. We were just about to start “one letter/week with guest contestants”, when we stumbled upon 36daysoftype.com, “a project that invites designers, illustrators and graphic artists to give their particular view on the signs from our alphabet.” and decided to join their crusade!
We are a few days behind but our letters will show up here and on Instagram shortly!
During 2014 our challenge was to write the names of the months. In the end of the year I got a mail from Sam in the Philippines who asked if he could use the pictures of Grafis words in a yearbook. Since we already offered the pictures for free as a desktop calendar we gave him permission to use them!
We are happy and quite amazed with the fact that our letters has found their way across the globe. Thank you internet, and of course Linda, our mentor and marketing manager. Sam sent me the yearbook when it was printed and it was very cool to see the words in a printed book. Both Letraspace and Grafi is mentioned in the book, thank you Sam Prudente!
LetraSpace was part of LitterArt Gästabud Friday and Saturday October 16-17th 2014 – a Literary/Art-happening in our home town Nyköping. Galleries and lectures in the name of literature and art.
Friday was the day of words. Linda and Gabriella arranged “Threat letter poetry” where the participants used words and sentences cut from newspapers and magazines to create poetry.
Following was the “Relay Haiku” where every line of a Haiku, based on a given theme, was written by individual people.
Saturday, the day of letters, started with the Drop Cap workshop where we encouraged people to embrace pen and paper and write or draw your favourite letter as a drop cap. Inspired by Lettering vs Calligraphy, TypeFight as well as Jessica Hiche and her Daily Dropcaps.
Time for our final workshop – write your own letters for a font! The participants was given templates with basic glyphs from PaintFont.com, chose a weapon and started to write or draw. LetraSpace created the fonts with the PaintFont-service, cleaned up and adjusted the letters and created additional glyphs for the european countries and sent them to their creators. You can download some of the fonts free of charge!
The fonts are based on the handwriting of LetraSpace workshop attendants, processed by the online service from PaintFont.com and refined by Daniel Viberg as part of the LetraSpace workshop, LitterArt Gästabud, Sweden, Autumn 2014.
These fonts are free to for both commercial and personal use. Thanks to all WorkShop attendants for sharing your creations. If you download the fonts, please spread the word – share this page using FaceBook, Pinterest, Twitter or your favourite Social media!Download
