This workshop will challenge you to build your skills on both the macro- & micro-typographic level. You will learn how to wrangle your favorite typefaces into the most beautiful, interesting, & readable layouts. You'll also get some insider tips on how to choose typefaces & how to combine two (or more!) of them, learn some techniques for creating clarity within typographic systems, & find out how to fine-tune long passages of text with multi-level hierarchies (oh, my!).
Come learn how fun it is to be seriously finicky & fastidious with type. Guaranteed to make you a better designer...and a better person. ;)
Bring your laptop & a recent version of Adobe InDesign. This workshop is based on Carolina's award-winning typography book Explorations in Typography (2016). A signed copy of the book (plus some other typographic goodies) is included in the price of the workshop!
