Instructor Biography:

Ivan Castro is a graphic designer based in Barcelona, Spain, who specializes in calligraphy, lettering, and typography. His work involves everything from advertising to editorial, and from packaging to logo design and gig posters. Although Ivan claims to have no specific style, one could say that he has a strong respect for the history of popular culture. He has been working in the field for more than 20 years, and has been teaching calligraphy and lettering for 15 years in the main design schools in Barcelona. He travels frequently, holding workshops and giving lectures at design festivals and conferences. He has published, “The ABC of Custom Lettering” and more recently “Lettering to the Max”, two lettering handbooks.
