ING Creatives 2019

Designing A Lettering Drop Cap

Hosted by: Marta Cerdà

We’ve all seen them in books or magazines, though you may not know the name…Drop caps are those big capital letters that are often seen at the beginning of the first paragraph of a long text. Let typography super star, Marta Cerda, teach you how to make one of those nifty guys- focusing the shape, working with different materials and with your own hands. Work like a kid with no fear and only one goal- make something that’s freaking cool. All participants must bring their own computer with photoshop and illustrator installed.

5 key takeaways

  1. Understand what a drop cap is.
  2. Discover how to use different materials in unconventional ways.
  3. Understand the nature of a letter by building it in a three dimensional way
  4. Lose your fear of typography (if have it!)
  5. Leave with a well designed, hand-made dropcap to take home.
