Our programme

In 2009, a few professional calligraphers and lettering designers decided to set up a unique center for the lettering arts, offering students a full- or part-time training in calligraphy & letter design. At ELI, students will develop a thorough historical and contemporary practical knowledge of written, carved, hand drawn and digital letterforms. Please discover our different courses:


We offer a 3-year foundation course, a 2-year postgraduate or a 1-year specialisation course in calligraphy, hand drawn/digital logo- and lettering design.
