Modern Storybook 2: The Layout Class

Okay, now that you’ve already taken Modern Storybook Script, so what do you do next? How do you use this alphabet successfully in your work?

In this workshop, we will first explore letter connectors, tricky ligature combinations, writing challenging words, building words into sentences, and text writing.

Then we will explore the creation of a successful and balanced layout using the elements of composition, including spacing and proportion. We will also discuss how to choose the proper approach for the meaning of the words you choose to write, and examine successful design examples. Envelope addressing and a short quote layout will be used as exercises to better understand our goal.
