Introduction to Type Design

For those inexperienced in type design you will learn the basics, and for those who have started already you will have the chance to advance your knowledge of the subject.

typomad taller workshop ortotipografía raquel marín lalolagráfica
Ortotypography

with Raquel Marín

In this workshop we will learn the value of typography related to design and communication. Through looking at real examples we will examine how the correct application of orthotypography is advantageous. In doing so we will become further informed about the expressive potential that typography and orthotypography bring to graphic and written communication.

The classroom based part (12 hours) will cover analysis of common mistakes, theory, written exercises (individual and in groups) and tests on an online platform with email feedback so that the students can be aware of their mistakes and improvement over the course (you will check your personal progress with a percentage improvement marking system).

The online part (8h) consists of providing 15 days free access to an e-learning platform where the students will find theory, test and self-evaluation exercises to keep learning and refresh what they learnt in the classroom.

taller workshop festival de tipografía de madrid
From stone to spaceship

with Chulotype

The Medialab-Prado building, that used to be The old Belgian Sawmill, has many facades decorated with beautiful letterforms. In June 2012,Manufactura Independiente organized a workshop to release them from the stone in which they are set and let them free into the digital realm. In this workshop we will continue this process in bringing this font to our screens.

We will use free software and open source tools (F/LOSS) for all the design processes, and the final result will be available through the Open Font License (OFL).

We will give each participant a complete set of tools ready for use, personal advice and also a guide to their first steps in using their own free software tools, as well as how to make the transition from their existing workflow. We will delve deeper into the different technical aspects of creating a font for distribution, working on drawing vectors, font formats, spacing and kerning. We will also talk about free font licensing, copyright for typography, collective creation and free licensing.
