Calligraphy Heats Up Barcelona

The General Calligraphy Course is the cornerstone of Visions calligraphy project and covers all the training for people who want to specialize in the subject. Our standpoint is passionate, and the course is conceived as a solid background with constant practice. This is the course that we, the teachers, would have liked to attend as students. The GCC is consciously designed from our own experience as students, teachers, and professional freelancing. We want to offer all the practical and theoretical knowledge needed, and train calligraphers at the highest level.

Oriol Miró Genovart

Oriol Miró Genovart, a freelance calligrapher from Barcelona, has worked at his calligraphy and typography studio since 1994. A graphic designer and chemical engineer, Miró has collaborated with advertising agencies, design studios, museums, media, networks, and publishers. His body of work features logos, headlines, long-form text compositions, diplomas, murals, wall calligraphy, movie titles, books, and more.

Miró has taught calligraphy and typography in Barcelona and worldwide and, since 1995, has been a teacher at Elisava School. Since 2015, he has been chief coordinator and professor of the calligraphy department at Visions School in Barcelona, ​​including three levels of calligraphy. Twice a year, Miró directs his own calligraphy retreats and intensive courses near Barcelona.

As a graphic design student at Elisava, Miró fell in love with calligraphy and has since dedicated his life to it. His vision of the letter is always about structure and spacing; his commitment is structural, never decorative. Miró’s passions are letters, counterforms, papers, brushes, and all kinds of pens. His position is passionate, and he cannot conceive of living a single day without writing by hand.
