Description

Urban Lettering Walk

Hosted by Paul Shaw

Join the entertaining Paul Shaw for one of two leisurely walks through parts of Portland. The Thursday lettering walk will be a near reprise of the one led by Shaw during TypeCon2013. It will go from downtown Portland to the Skidmore, Old Town, and Pearl District neighborhoods. There will be ghost signs, old neon signs, late 19th century “Artistic Lettering”, revived classical Roman capitals, Art Deco and interwar sans serifs, and more.

Paul Shaw has been conducting urban lettering walks since 2005 across the United States and in Canada. He does two walks per year in New York City for the Type Directors Club and has been leading walks for TypeCon for 13 years, including such cities as Atlanta, Boston, Buffalo, Denver, Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle.
