Lettering workshop - Berlin Letters

We had the chance to be part of the Berlin Letters festival, a 3-day event for Lettering, Calligraphy, Sign Painting, and Type-Design. It was a great place to exchange with designers and all typeface enthusiasts, listen to great speakers and participate in professional workshops . We selected the one with Ivan Castro called Lettering at the Kitchen and had a lot of fun drawing and placing letters on paper. Thanks again to all the organizers and we hope to join next year again! With love, the Bélaplume team Photos © Norman Posselt - www.normanposselt.com

25. Wirtschaftstag Berlin-Pankow

We had the great opportunity to take part in the 25. Wirtschaftstag Berlin-Pankow. We attend very interesting talks about the challenges and ideas of the future of the district Pankow (one of the 12 districts in Berlin). To exchange with all the main actors was an incredibly rich experience.The event took place in the great Zeiss-Planetarium. Music & laser show, classical music, and excellent food contributed to a nice evening. We exchange a lot of ideas with illustrators, musicians, local brewers, biker lovers, and politicians. Our contribution was an exclusive t-shirt just made for this occasion. Paris - Rom - Pankow. The goal was to put Pankow in the foreground ;)Special thank to the team of Wirtschaft Pankow for the...

Behind our logo

Our logo is the combination of a fountain pen and a feather. The fountain pen is a symbol of writing, which is the core of our t-shirt designs. The feather relates to birds representing freedom and inspiration. It also symbolizes trust, honor, strength, wisdom, power and freedom. In American Indian tradition, the feather is the gift of the bright spirit, providing energy, vibration, and protection. If you take closer, you would even see a body inside our logo representing our main medium which are -t-shirts. Our logo stands for freedom, connection, hope, power and inspiration. With love, the Bélaplume team
