Letter Exchange Conference
11-14 Oct 2018
Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge
2018 marks the 30th anniversary of Letter Exchange, the organisation for professionals in the lettering arts. From the outset, our members have included many of the leading practitioners from all fields of lettering including calligraphy, lettercutting, type design and graphic design.
Regardless of medium or technique our members have a focus on the letter itself, sharing experience and expertise. And while we champion and nurture traditional lettering crafts, our skills evolve to reflect contemporary practice. This puts us in a unique and important position to influence the development of lettering.
For the past 30 years, Letter Exchange has been actively encouraging the cross-pollination of ideas and approaches that keeps contemporary lettering fresh. To celebrate our anniversary, we are holding a conference that epitomises what we are all about. We are bringing together some of the very best letterers from North America, Europe and the United Kingdom for a celebration of lettering in all its diverse forms.
This conference, with the accompanying exhibition and other activities is an opportunity to show a wider audience what we do and why we do it. We would like to share our understanding and excitement about contemporary fine lettering and inspire the next generation of letterers.
This is a unique chance to see some of today’s finest lettering practitioners at the same event, an opportunity not to be missed.
