So awesome, Ken!
Great! Hope that there will be some video with this workshop after, very curious for!
Beautiful letter forms. So clean and precise, yet chock-full of character.
Ohhh, this is so sexy!
Thanks. The idea was to illustrate how to create distinctive lettering by exaggerating and/or modifying features of a typographic model.
As for a video, my host Gestalten did film a portion of the workshop. I'll be sure to let you know if and when that's made available.
Lovely letters, Ken.
Would be great! Thanks!
Welcome Ken! So great to see you on Dribbble.
Thanks Jeffrey, and everyone else for your encouraging comments. Nice to feel welcome.
wow, this is some great lettering!
It's terrific to discover your work on here, Ken. This looks great, I love the interaction between the letters and the varying baseline. The bottom right part of the 'G' is a really nice touch too.
Glad to hear you dig the lettering. That particular feature of the 'G' is really just a caricature of the typographic reference I used: Linotype Didot by Adrian Frutiger. I take even greater liberties with other letters, like the embellished exit strokes of the 'a' and 'n'.
They work really well, the similar shapes on 'e' and 't' make a lovely rhythm across the word. Anyway, looking forward to following more of your work!
Thanks Claire. I suppose I was trying to play up the similarity of form across as many letters as possible in an attempt to make the lettering more cohesive. To be honest, this was done rather quickly during a lettering demonstration, but that's what I can piece together in regard to my train of thought at the time.
Hey. Can you tell me how marker a Sharpie in work? I think to buy it or not.

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking, but Sharpies are not terribly special. Though, I do prefer them because Sharpies are readily available in the US, generally don't smudge and hold their shape if treated carefully. Not only are they cheap, but they also work great on good marker paper. I'm sure there are comparable markers available overseas.
