“You have to touch everything—you have to think about it, you have to plan a little more, and whatever you do is fairly permanent.”
We are proud to host the next exclusive letterpress workshop with Erik Spiekermann at his letterpress workshop p98a on October 17–18, 2014.
Held in German and English, it will explore the fundamentals of letterpress through theory, the mechanics of the printers used, and hands-on experimentation.
As a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from Erik Spiekermann himself, this is an advanced course for anyone interested in typography and letterpress printing.
Juan Velasco, Senior Editor for Art and Graphics at National Geographic magazine will be joining Gestalten this fall to host a workshop on the “Power of Infographics.”
This two-day workshop will provide the foundation to understand the role of visual storytelling with infographics and go through the process of creating them. You will learn about gathering and preparing data, and working with numerical information to create charts, sketches, and storyboards. You will also be able to use hierarchy, color, typography, illustration, and narrative order to get your messages across with effective infographics for print editorials.
The workshop will offer an overview of the essential tools and strategies involved in creating engaging animated and interactive graphics for mobile devices and the web.
