was born in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He studied at the Rotterdamse Grafische School (School for printing and graphic arts). In 1986 he attended a workshop in France with Claude Mediavilla and considers this as his start on the path of calligraphy. 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: The Ashes Burning

The main proposal is to provide the student with an improvement of flat brush manipulation techniques applied to calligraphy and visual compositions.
For these explanations the teacher uses live performances and demonstrations of the Latin alphabet evolution since the ancient Roman Capital Letter and their influences in several historical alphabets and in Gothic models.
As important as the techniques are some methodologies that emphasize design thinking that are involved in the development of composition projects, whether they are traditional or contemporary. Learn how to explore the instrument’s strengths and understand how to improve them for your projects.
Regardless of style, each student will go on a journey to invent imagery through the strokes of two types of instruments that are at the same time intimate, known, mysterious and unpredictable …
