Event Details

We are inviting professional designers and design students to join us at a private workshop in typeface design.

Typeface design is almost a secret part of graphic design, rarely taught outside of elite design schools. Dave Crossland travels the world offering workshops for font beginners that brings the tools, knowledge and business models graphic designers need to get going.


Workshop covers these topics:

  • Letter Sketching
  • Digital Drawing
  • Font Production
  • OpenType Coding
  • Web Fonts

Hear Dave talking on WHY he loves sharing his knowledge on creating fonts through these workshops:


Dave Crossland

INSTRUCTOR

Dave Crossland is an English type designer, best known for creating the Cantarell typeface: a beautiful contemporary Humanist sans serif. Made while studying for over 2 years in the Department of Typography at the University of Reading (2009), Cantarell was chosen as the brand type for the GNOME desktop. Dave is currently ‘Font Consultant’ to Google Web Fonts and has commissioned hundreds of typefaces from designers around the world.

Dave dreams of a free culture of visual communication around the world, so he decided to free fonts. His Masters thesis related the history of the software freedom movement to the practice of type design.
