Participants will be invited to design their own typefaces with limited character set.
In 2016 Viktoriya was British Council artist in residence at the museum as part of the Village of Type season. We’re excited to be working with her again on this short series of online workshops that Viktoriya has designed especially for the museum.
Participants will be invited to design their own typefaces with limited character set. This workshop will introduce part of the processes involved in the designing of a typeface.
How to start a typeface?
How to find its voice and tone?
How to design your tools to help shape your typeface?
How to think of letterforms as a system?
What are the relationships between characters?
How to build a rhythm of letterforms?
Type design is seen as a serious discipline and might be intimidating, but this workshop aims to breakdown that reputation.
Please note the software required for this workshop only works on Mac. Participants will be required to bring their own Mac laptops to each session. You will need the Glyphs app installed on your laptop to take part in this workshop. We recommend installing this as close to the workshops as possible to make the most of the 30-day demo.
