In this 3 day workshop, students approach the practice of typeface design by looking at type and the shapes within. Through research and analysis of shapes you will learn the language of letter forms both on a visual and on a narrative level.
By sketching and drawing digitally an alphabet will be completed.
During the first day participants will have a brief chat about shapes and letters, followed by an intense drawing session. Sketching techniques both on paper as digitally will be explained. The next days missing lowercase or uppercase will be added by extracting rules from the given letters.
At the end participants will have an 'unfinished' typeface with lowercase or uppercase letters. But each one will be forced to draw something different that they are used to.
