Work with your hands !
As designers, we have a very special liaison with our computers = our bread winners. We work, eat and sometimes even sleep in front of the screen. In this world of ours, keen on social cobwebs and filled with electronical gadgets, it just feels so good to be able to actually do stuff by hand – at least every once in a while. And so we signed up for a letterpress workshop with M. Thomas Gravemaker (*no joke in Amsterdam (here we go again, the european mecca of design keeps luring us), where we got to work & play with real letter forms, trying to fit them into the composition and onto the page (our theme was the month of May), print them & inbetween small cups of strong coffee talk about design, typography, letterpress and other important matters of designers’ souls.
