Typeface design education from Cooper Union
But do you sketch

…but do you sketch?
with Zrinka Buljubašić

Sketching is fun, exciting and smart!
Learn to use sketching not only as a technique to quickly get ideas out there but as a great approach to planning your next type design project. In short - sketching makes your creative and original ideas functional!


You will be taught to distinguish between and draw different types of letter contrasts, structures and proportions, to work with spacing, rhythm and consistency, and observe optical corrections.
Mastering sketching technique allows you to anticipate what might occur during your next typeface design by quickly mapping your type family and answering questions to potential problems.Sketching is fun, exciting and smart!
