Events & Type Classes 

For those who aim to level up their typographic skill and knowledge OSNS offers hands on classes in lettering, history of typography, typeface design, and calligraphy. 

It's all Logical

It all starts with understanding the mechanics of writing. Start thinking with your hands as you delve under the bonnet of this human activity called writing,

immersed in the nuts and bolts of word and letter components is fascinating and rewarding.

Discovering how to construct sound custom type and lettering via tools and history makes the logic of letterform construction intrinsic, building the confidence for the freedom to not only break the rules, but to break them well.
