Type@Cooper - Introduction to Typeface Design

Introduction to Typeface Design


Tue., Sep. 30 – Tue., Dec. 02, 2014
6:30PM – 9:30PM
This course introduces basic principles and techniques of typeface design. At the beginning an integrated and interactive approach to letter drawing with manual tools in conjunction with digital drawing using Robofont software will prepare the ground for each participant’s term project — a typeface design based on a historical model. Students cultivate skills of observation, self-critique, analysis, and problem-solving. Structures and concepts for proofing and presenting type designs will be discussed and practiced.
  • Each student must bring a laptop computer to class.
