Typographic Workshop for Students of Visual Communication from Visegrad Countries
24 October – 30 October 2011
FreeDom Gallery, Bahon, Slovak Republic
Deadline for registration: 12 October 2011
TypoTopo workshop theme
As the title implies, the workshop will look at the relation between typography and topography. We don’t want people to simply redraw images/objects using a computer. Rather, students will search for inspiration in topography (however this is interpreted) and apply it to type design. The workshop will give students an opportunity to learn the basics of drawing fonts, correctly drawing Bézier curves, spot and fix optical mistakes, sketch type, work in Fontlab and advance their skills to create a usable working font.
