Type@Cooper - Weights, Widths & Styles

Mon., Sep. 12 – Mon., Nov. 14, 2016
6:30PM – 9:30PM
location: The Monotype Classroom at Letterform Archive

Students will expand their existing work with additional styles, taking a two member family to a more fleshed out suite of fonts. Techniques for exploring unexpected yet related styles will be covered, as well as extending language and feature support through a combination of theoretical and technical know-how. Kerning, OpenType, more automation via scripts and extensions will be utilized to make fledgling fonts more useful.
