Type Design Course THURSDAY EVENINGS OVER SIX WEEKS: 18 October to 22 November 2012 6.30–9.30pm @ The Roost Level 1, 152-160 Hunter St Newcastle NSW
Always wanted to design your own typeface but don’t know where to start?
This course—the only type design course in Australia—will introduce you to the techniques of type design.
There are two components to this course: DESIGN, which features sketching techniques, legibility theory and efficient vectoring; and CONSTRUCTION which covers spacing, metrics, kerning and introduces you to FontLab font-creation software. Access to FontLab is not mandatory, but will allow you to get maximum benefit from this course. Participants will require their own laptop computer with Adobe Illustrator or equivalent.
Participants will leave with the skills to create a working digital typeface of their own. And, this course answers the big question once and for all: which letters do you start with?
TUTOR: WAYNE THOMPSON
WAYNE is Type Designer and principal of Australian Type Foundry and has over 100 typefaces to his credit. He is also an experienced teacher, currently delivering Typography classes in Newcastle NSW.
