lettering vs calligraphy

June 7, 2013 § Leave a comment

Which do you prefer – lettering or calligraphy? Both are hot in the stationery world right now, and a lot of people do not even know there is a difference. Two very awesome artists in Berlin know there is a distinct difference, and they are currently battling it out!


Lettering vs Calligraphy’ is a project by Giuseppe Salerno and Martina Flor. It consists of a visual dialogue between a letterer and a calligrapher, where they draw/write a letter responding to a keyword given by a moderator. The adventure aims to explore the capabilities of the two technical approaches. It delivers one letter daily and takes place online, where the visitors are invited to vote for their favourite.

here are a few of my favorite recent battles:

‘spring x’
