Intenzivna delavnica oblikovanje plakatne črkovne vrste 

Letošnjo zimsko edicijo tipografskih delavnic Tipo Brda organiziramo v sodelovanju s kreativnim centrom Poligon, v Ljubljani. Osredotočili se bomo na proces razvoja unikatne plakatne črkovne vrste. V uvodnih urah se bomo spomnili na razvoj plakata in uporabo črkovnih vrst skozi 20. stoletje. S pomočjo  letteringa, skiciranja črk, bomo kreirali ideje osnovnih potez črkovne vrste. V nadaljevanju bomo presedli v digitalni svet oblikovanja in razvili font. V torek, 26. marca bomo plakate s predstavitvijo končnih črkovnih vrst razstavili v prostorih Poligona.

Urnik
Vsak dan,  sob – pon, bomo ob 9h začeli z zajtrkom v prostorih Poligona. Ob 9.30 bomo dan otvorili z uvodnim predavanjem in ga nadaljevali s praktičnim delom, skiciranjem, digitalizacijo. Vsak dan bomo imeli skupinske korekture. Tekom dneva bodo na voljo razni prigrizki, sadnje, čaji in kava.

Type Days Ljubljana 2019
(23 March – 25 March 2019 with the exhibition on 26 March, Poligon)

Intensive type design workshop with focus on poster typefaces

This winter we are organizing a workshop in co-production with Poligon – creative center, which is located in the heart of Ljubljana, Slovenia.

We are going to focus on design of display typefaces, which could be used on poster. As usually we start the workshop fully hands-on and kick off with drawing the type. Further on we continue building a firm concept for a type or a type family. Later, each participant will work on his/her individual typeface in a digital environment. On the Wednesday, the poster of all participants are evaluated and exhibited as large high quality prints.

Methods and techniques
Along basic and advanced lectures on type design you get known with basic lettering, drawing skills and developing the concept of the typeface. You will be guided step by step throughout the digital workflow: scan preparation, correct vector paths, curve optimisation, automated tasks and prototyping the font.

Daily routine
Sat – Mon, we start our day with a morning coffee and croissants served at 9 am in Poligon. A lecture with demonstration at 9.30 am, lunch break at 1pm, individual work during the day and group consultations at 5 pm. Refreshment breaks anytime of the day.

Mentor
This year our mentor is Alja Herlah. She holds MA from Graphic and Interactive Communications where she focused on designing non-Latin typefaces. After the graduation she broaden her skills as Font Developer in Atlas Font Foundry, Berlin. She is currently living in London, working as Font Developer at DaltonMaag.

Who can participate?
Students of graphic design, typography, architecture and all other people with some basic experience with type design or calligraphy. Our agenda is to connect people with different skills and backgrounds. You are welcome to bring your own ideas and sketches of type you want to work on them.

Tools needed
Bring your favourite drawing tools (fineliners, markers, pencils, pens, white-out, a sketchbook, …). A laptop computer is required, we prefer the application Glyphs or FontLab. However, if you work with any other font editor this is not an obstacle. The workshop crew will provide transparent paper and other stationery.

Workshop fee
200
€ (185€ students) includes breakfast, refreshments and all the tools needed. The price also includes annual Tipo Brda membership (professionals: 30 €, students: 15 €) for all the participants. Only bank transfers are accepted. The complete sum needs to be paid in advance by 1 Mar 2019. In case of cancellation we keep 20 % administrative costs.

Send your application to tipobrda@gmail.com – deadline: 15 Feb 2019
We will get in touch with all the participants to inform you with additional details.
