Letterer Martina Flor and calligrapher Giuseppe Salerno met at Typo Stammtisch in Berlin and founded this project as a playground to challenge their skills. The adventure aims to explore the capabilities of the two technical approaches where they draw/write a letter or a word responding to a keyword given by a moderator.
