Throughout this course, students will learn the basics of typography for design projects. Alternating lectures to practical workshops, students will learn the technical terminology needed to distinguish calligraphic and lettering issues, character and font clusters, and how to distinguish typefaces, letter features, weight and glyph characteristics in a typeset. Using vector graphics software, participants will also practice how to compose, to edit and to work with text, with the purpose of designing head titles or layouts, and body copy structuring, eventually mastering concepts such as readability and hierarchy of weights. This course is intended for students without any academic background in the specific subject area and for students attending their first year of university studies in Art and Design.
