Typography is one of the crucial foundational elements of visual communication, yet very few designers learn how to do it right. No matter how good your design is, lousy typography work can spell trouble.
This workshop focuses on essential typography principles and expanding your knowledge about the newest trends in the world of typography. You’ll get to know the basics like layout typesetting in InDesign and classic type design, as well as experimental typography like kinetic and animated fonts.
We’ll take a look at the newest contemporary typography practices such as variable fonts and web typography and discover how type can be used to address social or political issues.
Over the course of eight weeks, you’ll be exploring through showcases and practical assignments, using professional type design software. You’ll be working with an expert from the field who will guide you through the process and provide first-hand tips & tricks.
The outcome will be six typography projects to season your portfolio and a final project where you’ll be tasked to create a visual identity with custom typography.
To participate in this workshop, you need to be familiar with basic design principles.. It’s also suitable for experienced designers who want to refresh their typography skills.
