Niels Bakkerus (Young Gouru of Typograhy) hosting a workshop soon at Studio 68!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Niels studied graphic design and communication at St. Lucas and illustration at AKV St. Joost. Through graffiti Niels got into typography and created his own style of illustration and typography

Because of his background in graffiti he was well known with lettering itself but got into custom lettering more and more and started to master the art of penmanship and calligraphy as well. His most advanced works where all of these influences are combined are his complex ambigrams. Lettering designs that can be read normally and upside down as well.

Niels works in the fields of illustration and graphic design, but also works an artist on his own personal projects. His vision on how to combine those two will be of big influence in the workshop.

Niels will be coming to Lebanon specially to hold a Typography Workshop in Studio 68 at VAPA!

The workshop will be divided into six sessions on May 23, 24, 25, 28, 29, 30,

Fee for this workshop is 220$ per person, or 200$ per person if in a group.

A certification will be given upon completion of this workshop.
