Crafting Type 3-day Workshop

January 30–February 1, all day

Crafting Type is an intense 3-day workshop where absolute beginners learn how to design typefaces and intermediate type designers boost their skills. We run it around the world at cities large and small to bring you a solid start in type design.

You may not be considering a career as a type designer. Many people we meet at our workshops have already established great careers as artists, architects, and illustrators. Sometimes we see customers again who travel in from another city to attend the same workshop twice — with no intention of becoming a professional type designer, ever.
