Typography and Styling
a full-day workshop with Dietlind Wolf / Hamburg
and guest speaker Elina Frumerman / San Francisco
using typography in styling and storytelling
spend a day with us exploring various methods of marrying type and image
our workshop will focus on three specific approaches:
1. creating typography: using props to create letterforms in a photograph
2. letterforms as objects: using cut typography to create images and compositions
3. layering with type: adding type over an image to change a photograph's mood or meaning
(including a quick tutorial on digital image scanning and manipulation)
elina frumerman is an amazing artist, working with type and pictures with such an ease and beauty.
her books are eye treasures. see some of her spectacular work, attached below.
we are so much looking forward to sharing what we love, to inspire you and expand the way you approach your own work.
our workshop will be led in English and be held in the berkentienhouse,
a beautiful house in lübeck known for centuries for handcrafts in glass.
