September / Spit & Polish / Vector Lettering Workshop with Bobby Haiqalsyah

We're rescheduling the workshop so we can see more of you and give others time to plan and come to the workshop as well. In hindsight less than a month notice can be too much for people so now, we'll see you in a month's time! See you all there.

Bobby Haiqalsyah is a designer, illustrator, and letterer based in Melbourne, Australia. Originally born in Indonesia, Bobby (or bobsta14 as his last name is so hard to spell) combined the vibrant aesthetics of the culture he was born in with the design education and history that he got from growing up in Australia. Having spent a few years in branding, media, and the advertising industry he’s settling to a life of lettering and illustration in Melbourne where he co-founded the Melbourne Lettering Club which is a network for like minded letter lovers to share the passion and knowledge to each other.

The workshop will cover the basic and fundamentals of creating hand lettering, building it up and we later convert into a vector piece together in the class. Some type basics will be covered, and refreshed if you have some basic knowledge on type and Adobe Illustrator we can help to take those to help you create you own piece of custom vector lettering. If you have experience with lettering bring your old pieces along, also bring the type of lettering that you like along and we’ll try to dissect the style together. Workshop perfect for beginners and advanced practitioners.
