What is Vector?

Vector Art is created in vector-based programs (such as Illustrator, Corel Draw, Inkscape and Flash) using vector tools only. Its most valuable benefit is endless scalabilty, while keeping the file size small and the quality up. Vectors are based on paths and points and are easy to adjust and edit whenever you get back to your file.

What is Typography?

Typography is the art and technique of arranging type, designing a typeface or modifying letters. The arrangment of type involves choosing a typeface, setting a font size and line height, adjusting spaces between words (tracking) and letters (kerning) and many more things.
Talking about Typefaces
A typeface or font is created as vector! This means, you can make it as big as you want and it will always look good. The fontsize basically is a scale factor.

sooo... What is VecType?

VecType is Digital Typography created using vector tools.

Since every typeface/font is vector by default, every piece of Typography using a typeface/font is vector by default.
Of course you can create typographic art from scratch with vector tools or trace a sketch of type that you created.

However, there are ways and options to enhance the vector type design by raster elements. We will allow such deviations, but the Vector part of your art should clearly be the main focus.
Simply putting some letters over a picture will not work ;) Raster elements should be reduced to supporting the vector part, not to be the main focus of the artwork.

Project Educate Calligraphy Week

Thu Apr 9, 2015, 1:05 AM

Hi guys! I have scheduled a week over at projecteducate for calligraphy! :happybounce:

Monday, June 22nd - Sunday, June 28th 2015

In an earlier journal I have asked for interested deviants that would like to write journals on the topic of calligraphy. You will be working with me and the awesome team at projecteducate with your articles to make it an awesome week!

I am planning on running a challenge and a contest for the week and to write the introductory and summary journals.

The rest, well, that is up to us!

If you have an idea for an article, do not hesitate to let me know and I will save you a spot!

However if you would like to participate, but have no idea what to write, here are some ideas for the type of article you could write or just themes for which you could write one article:

  • Artworks or tutorial features
  • Artist interviews
  • The history of calligraphy
  • Types of calligraphy, f.e. blackletter or Japanese calligraphy, digital calligraphy
  • Calligraphy tools, traditional and digital tools
  • Product reviews
  • Tutorials or Tips

We try to have two articles a day posted on projecteducate, taking into account intro, summary, contest and challenge journals, this leaves 10 spots for articles. So not every topic that I mentioned above will be covered, the list is merely an inspiration, not a schedule ;)

Please let me know if you're interested! :eager: :la:
