About this workshop

  • Walk through the history of type and progression throughout different media
  • Show examples of type in print and web and the differences between both
  • Show how type works with color/texture/images
  • Talk about different types of fonts (serif, sans-serif, display, handwritten) and the benefits/best uses for all
  • Walk through do’s/dont’s - no stretching, rotating, etc.
  • Demonstrate with provided fonts (4-5 or so) and headline/body copy of how to lock up type. Have class play around with this.
  • Talk about how legs/bars can be used to nest type
