Calligraphy experiments

During the summer ’17 I worked as graphic designer in design agency in Ljubljana. While working there I realized how much I miss type design and letters so I took a great opportunity, moved to London and start as intern in Dalton Maag. First week of an internship I was working on my calligraphy. Calligraphy is the base for type design so I didn’t mind to work on it and developing my practice. Having the whole day only for calligraphy brought some experimental ideas into my parallel pen.

Roman Capitals where I added detail with stencil serifs.

Caroline minuscule and my stencil version of caroline minuscule.
