A creative typography workshop in which participants create typography that looks like what it says.
Workshop: How running makes me feel
An afternoon workshop about how running makes you feel, led by Sarah Hyndman. The participants brainstormed words and phrases about how running makes them feel. They then recreated the words in a way that visually represented what the word means.

Workshop: Typographic Swearing ’n’ Cussing
An antidote to all the over-the-top sentimentality that has become Valentine’s Day.
Learn about the history of typographic protest, and how a typeface can subvert a word. Explore different types of swearing, from random streams of consciousness, visual onomatopoeia, to absurd phrases and aimed verbal tirades. Create your own typographic profanities in a social setting with good conversation.
