A Three-part Type Intensive

Every creative professional, including the most seasoned designer, can benefit from learning to communicate more effectively with type. These three sessions will give you the expert-level typographic skills and aesthetics necessary to master your typography, and visibly improve your work. Gourmet Typography Training will sharpen your eye and reignite your passion for typography.

Gourmet Typography, Part One

This session teaches the fundamental typographic skills and aesthetics necessary for every designer. Learn to see and understand type and typeface designs like you’ve never before.

Topics covered include:

  • Think like a type designer (hands-on exercise)
  • The seven worst type crimes

  • Getting the most out of your software (typographically speaking)

  • Fine-tuning your type
  • Alignment, tracking, and word spacing
  • Custom kerning demystified

Gourmet Typography, Part Three

Knowledge of typography and how it behaves as it relates to both print and the Web (and even motion) is essential for today’s designer. This session focuses on everything you (and your clients) need to know about non-print applications of type.

Topics covered include:

  • Type on the Web
  • Web-safe fonts
  • Type as graphic
  • The new Web fonts
  • Type in motion

Join us for an intensive, inspiring day (or just a few hours) of typographic enlightenment. Learn to take control of your type instead of letting it control you!
