Unlock the potential of typography in the immersive realm of mixed reality with this cutting-edge workshop, tailored for designers, artists, and enthusiasts at any skill level. Immerse yourself in an innovative learning experience that blends the tactile charm of traditional typography with the boundless possibilities of digital creation. This beginner-friendly workshop offers a unique opportunity to explore, design, and craft typography within a mixed reality environment.

Participants should have a basic understanding of Adobe Illustrator. While we welcome individuals with skills in 3D modeling (such as Blender, C4D), it is not a prerequisite for this workshop. Additionally, prior knowledge of mixed reality is not necessary.

The goal is to acquire skills in Integrated Design & Software focused on the spatial typography of mixed reality and to apply these skills to a potential project.

Participants will work on collaborative projects within the VR world, gain a basic understanding of experiencing mixed reality design, and develop a mini project.
