A 3 day long weekend crash course in type design is coming to SF, CA - Crafting Type Jan 10-12. It will be held at FontShop in the North Beach area. The class is geared to total beginners but people who have had a bit of experience and want to work on specific aspects of their design process are encouraged to come as well.
The idea behind the course is to either
- give you a running start in type design so you have resources and insights needed to keep going or
- give a typographer or any user of type insights into using type that can only come from making some
It is hard work because it is all day (9-6) for 3 days but it is also hugely fun. Students are routinely amazed at how far they have come in 3 days.
