New process photos from our Perso-Arabic workshop.
Above: MCAD student Tousue’s sketch in progress. Check the Geotypografika Flickr
page for classroom shots from yesterday’s Perso-Arabic Workshop with Leland Hill,
a colleague from VCUQatar on his Spring Break. Leland introduced a workshop
concept from The Fifth Color we had worked with some years ago in Doha, and
brought along many of their posters as well. Shokran, Lelando!
What a great day we had. Also positive? No light sabers were used in anger.
Our wee typo-grupetto had photographed examples of Arabic in Minneapolis,
and added this to the mix. Initial B&W work sought to isolate two letterforms
and then explored a wide variety of formal possibilities.
More, much more to come.
