Laura Meseguer's Research Topic: Deepening the design of stencil types from the calligraphic model, as a fusion between both disciplines In this presentation, Laura Meseguer, a freelance graphic and type designer based in Barcelona, shares her background and presents her research topic. She introduces a morphological typeface design study based upon the calligraphy of Oriol Miró who developed models of humanist calligraphy, roman and italic, using different broad nib pens (1.5, 2.5, and 4), with the idea that they would serve to develop a typeface family of three styles: regular, italic and bold while maintaining the manual spirit. This presentation was moderated by Gloria Kondrup, Executive Director at the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography (HMCT).
