There will be demonstrations, tips, and individual live answers to your questions (as much as possible).

Elmo finished his study of graphic and typographic design at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague (passed with distinction). He has taught workshops in several countries in Europe, as well as Australia, Mexico, South Korea, Canada, and USA, and at The Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague (type design for post-graduate students). Elmo worked as a freelance graphic designer/type designer (for DTL, for which he designed the typeface Dorian, and worked on other typefaces). He has exhibited calligraphy in Belgium, France, and the Netherlands and and his work has been selected for different publications. Since 2016 he has divided his time between working for a design studio (specialists in corporate and annual reporting), and making letters and teaching workshops.

• TOPIC: Fresh & Fancy  – modern illumination inspired by Lindisfarne Gospels

The Lindisfarne Gospels or book of Lindisfarne is, quite simple, one of the most beautiful and inspiring handwritten and illuminated books in the world, a landmark of human creative achievement and a testament of commitment and faith.“
Michelle P. Brown, Professor Emerita of Medieval Manuscript Studies, University of London
We will have a look at the book, learn about it´s history, explore the story behind. And after that, let´s focus on the illuminated headings. We find out about the letterforms, create our own alphabet.
Knowing the origins, we play with those and add some freshness & fancyness to create our own modern illumination.
