Type Design Intensive

Principles of Typeface Design (10 weeks)

💬 Read what designers said about this course.

Learning the skill of typeface design is not only a great addition to a graphic designers skillset, but also a rewarding way to express yourself through the work you create. A hands-on experience will train your eye to see space, proportion, and weight—enhancing lettering projects, logo design, and custom type.

Join Troy Leinster for a ten-week exploration of the systems and processes of making a text or display typeface. During the course you will be introduced to different contrast models, idea generation techniques, sketching methods, and how to use a font editor to draw and space your font. Upon completing the course you will have a good understanding of the key elements of typeface design and be on your way to completing your first typeface. Bring your own font editor, or we'll provide you with a full one year license to RoboFont.

Your learning process will include:
• Ten weekly 3-hour interactive online group sessions
• Introduction to key concepts, work time, and feedback
• Explorative tasks and working through project reviews
• Weekly one-on-one reviews with Troy

Applicants:
Beginners with a good knowledge of Bézier drawing tools are welcome, as are more experienced designers, and those interested in developing a type portfolio for application to further type design studies. This course is content rich and we recommend you allocate an additional 3 hours of project time per week to gain the most from your experience. Due to the interactive nature of the course, it will be limited to 16 students.

Prerequisites:
Experience using Bézier drawing tools, ie: Adobe Illustrator.
