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. 

 As you delve under the bonnet of this human activity called writing it's about thinking with your hands instead of your head,  immersed in the nuts and bolts of word and letter components is fascinating.

Discovering how to construct custom type and lettering from the ground up via tools and the history of writing provides intrinsic understanding of the architecture of letterforms. This understanding provides steadfast confidence to not only break the rules, but break them well! 

and it's all logical...
