TYPE DESIGN WEEK 2012
ISIA Urbino Type Design Week is a one week intense course which will take place between the 29th of July and the 3th of August at ISIA (High Institute for Applied Arts), in the Renaissance city of Urbino in Italy.
For one week the students will be guided by proven professionals in the development of a type design/lettering project. An interesting programme will provide the participants with background information addressing discourses and techniques of type design and the design of letters as a critical design process.
Erik van Blokland, is the invited guest for the 2012 edition. Together with Jonathan Pierini and Albert Pinggera as visiting lecturer he's looking forward to work together in a lively and inspiring environment. Starting from some individual sketches and drawings, experimenting with different tools and possibilities, the concept for a collective project is going to be selected and developed.
ISIA Urbino Type Design Week is open to type designers as well as graphic designers, art directors, type addicts of any kind. Everyone involved with the design or usage of fonts will find the Type Design Week to be the perfect place to learn more about type, get inspired and give it a try!
