A creative typography workshop in which participants create typography that looks like what it says.
A studio based workshop led by Sarah Hyndman in which you will be taken through a series of exercises, discuss ideas as a group and respond to feedback from the workshop leader. The workshop starts with an introduction to creative typography accompanied by the work of designers and artists to give you inspiration. We start the creativity with a markmaking warmup exercise then move onto creating thumbnail sketches in which we explore layout and scale. After a short break we begin the main typographic exploration, at the end of which we pin all the pieces produced on the wall and have a group discussion over a glass of wine.
