What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
The Art of the Letter
May 3, 8:00am - 9:30am CDT. Hosted at Industry Print Shop
About this FieldTrip
If you love lettering and typography and have always wanted to learn the craft yourself, join us this Friday at Industry Print Shop!
Commercial lettering artist and designer Ryan Hamrick will teach us the basics and give us a great foundation for beginning our journey into hand-lettering and letterform design. This event is a sneak peek at a larger workshop Ryan will be hosting in May and June.
You’ll learn all you need to know to get started, including the fundamentals of typography and type terms, some great tools to get you started, best sketching practices, and more.
If you’ve been curious as to whether pursuing training in hand-lettering is something you’d enjoy, this is great initial look at this incredibly fun and rewarding art form. There’s never been a better time than right now to add this enormously valuable skill to your arsenal.
This FieldTrip is a special co-production between CreativeMornings/ATX and AIGA Austin, the first of four we’ll be hosting with AIGA in 2019. Learn something new and meet and mingle with your fellow creatives from both communities.
AIGA Austin advances design as a professional craft, strategic advantage, and vital cultural force. As the largest community of design advocates, we bring together practitioners, enthusiasts, and patrons to amplify the voice of design and create the vision for a collective future. We define global standards and ethical practices, guide design education, enhance professional development, and make powerful tools and resources accessible to all.
Chameleon Cold-Brew is Austin’s original consciously-crafted, organic cold-brew coffee.
