We caught up with Barcelona-based illustrator and lettering artist Birgit Palma at design conference Typo 2017 in Berlin last week. Birgit was hosting modular lettering workshops alongside Daniel Triendl.
Adobe Germany approached Birgit two months ago with a concept for a collaborative project – a workshop to create a digital typeface showcasing tools and basic shapes available using Creative Cloud.
Daniel and Birgit collaborated on a modular type system, and have now created multiple alphabets based on basic, geometric shapes as a result. Artists participating in their workshops are encouraged to share files and collaborate real-time to design within the shapes for each letter of the alphabet. The alphabet for Berlin (seen here) is one of four Brigit and Daniel have made – there’s also Vienna, Munich and Zurich alphabets, the cities in which they will also host workshops.
