‘No, Not Like That’: An introduction to lettering for graphic designers is back.
Back by popular demand! We are delighted to bring back the highly popular and incredibly high-rated introductory workshop to Lettering for Designers with lettering guru Max Phillips ‘No, Not Like That’ – as part of our Design Summer Sessions.
Get to grips with lettering at this high-rated two-part workshop, led by Max Phillips of Signal Foundry.
Most designers can draw letters, sort of, just as most designers can sing, sort of.
But using type and drawing type are very different things and lettering skills are no longer taught in most design schools.
The first part of this two-part workshop will take you through some basic principles of letter construction, review some common rookie mistakes and assign a small lettering project due the following week.
The second workshop will be devoted to critiquing and discussing the participants’ assignments, followed by an analysis of your own individual strengths and weaknesses and suggestions for further development.
A MUST for branding designers, aspiring type designers and anyone who wants to work more effectively with lettering, wordmarks and typefaces.
Friday 19th August, 9:30-11.30am
Friday 26th August, 9:30-11.30am
Make sure to book your ticket early as this workshop sells in record times.
