Modernised Gothics

This course will look at how gothic lettering can be adapted into more contemporary scripts, along the lines of the process used for developing the Marisco wine labels. We will start by looking at some more formal and informal gothic scripts and then merge them with elements of non-medieval alphabets in order to come up with new types of script. This process will initially be experimental, but the intention is that you will all be able to develop and apply your own alphabet by the end of the course. Here is the link to Peter's work at the Marisco web site click here
