Townscape is composed by signs, The signs are colored not by usual, common, ordinary font but by custom-made lettering or lettering by unknown and non-specialist. Individual form and distinctive style assert themselves and we are fascinated with them indescribably. It may be said that the aggregation of these lettering and something which associated with the aggregation have the vernacularity. And the font or lettering designed based on the aggregation is the vernacular font.

At any rate, Take it easy! In this session, We try to design vernacular logotype for BITS by ourselves without their permission. And it is not the degree of completion of the logo but an experience through the process of the experimental method that we aim to obtain.

From the letters which are brought by each participant, reveal the important characteristic of their letters, incorporate each other and make the logotype eventually. This session is probably intended for students and type lovers, not for advanced-level designers.
