Noroff Vocational School in Stavanger was lucky enough to host a workshop with type and visual designer Sun Helen Isdahl Kalvenes.

The workshop was held during her visit to Stavanger in February.

The workshop started with an introduction and basics of typography. Then our students and other participants got to try out different drawing and sketching exercises in typography.
