The Doodlefest

Prepare to unleash your creative juices! …It’s alright, we’ll lay down a tarp. We’ll also provide drawing paper, pens and pencils. Oh, and snacks and tunes. You just bring your pathological love of letters (plus any cool typographic books or objects you’d like to share). The Doodlefest is a no pressure, no judgment way to banish creative blocks, exchange ideas, and meet like-minded letter geeks. All skill levels welcome!

DETAILS  The Doodlefest has no topics or objectives, other than to enjoy letters. It’s pretty much an open-ended hangout where you’re free to play with different ideas / letterforms / techniques / tools. Exchange ideas with other folks. Or just focus in on a single idea you’ve been wanting to explore. Not sure what to do? We’ll set you up with some drawing exercises. Think that you “suck at letters?” There’s no judgment here, but we’ll be happy to provide some guidance if you’re interested. :: The Doodlefest is also recommended if you’d like to develop an idea you can use for the Type Design Intensive.

DRAWING MATERIALS  We have lots of paper, pencils, pens and other tools. We also have specimen books and styleguides to enjoy and be inspired by. :: And we invite you to bring any favorite tools or books you might have!

ENJOY snacks and refreshments; free type-inspired art cards and goodies. Wi-fi and other amenities also available.
