Erik Marinovich is a San Francisco-based lettering artist and designer. As the co-founder of Friends of Type, he’s spent the last several years drawing more letters, type, and logos than you could even fathom.
In 2012 he co-founded Title Case, a creative workspace that conducts workshops and lectures in order to share his learnings with others. And in 2017, he’s bringing his teaching expertise to Indianapolis.
In this intimate, full-day workshop, you’ll explore the process of composing well-balanced lettering layouts. Throughout the day, Erik will cover the principles of visual hierarchy, research, and the importance of style selection.
Attendees (that’s you) are required to bring a 5-7 word phrase that, through a process of critique, refinement, and 1-on-1 review with Erik, will develop into a fully completed work.
