The second day students continued sketching by hand, revising and collaborating to create a set of finalized typeface sketches. During the discussion, several points were made. The typeface needed to be one that could be translated as a unified group while remaining distinct to each of the students working on individual letterforms. Several sketches were examined and eventually one typeface was chosen to work on. The concept of the chosen typeface (3rd row, 4th and 5th from left) utilizes letterforms from the Cyrillic alphabet and is to be combined with structural elements of two other typefaces (3rd row, 3rd from left) created by students in the workshop. Each student was then given 4 characters to work on in two versions: italicized and script. This next generation of sketches will be reviewed on the third day.
