Micro & Macro Typography: Tânia Raposo


Tânia Raposo workshop at Letterform Archive

1001 Mariposa Street #307
San Francisco, CA 94107

Offered by Type@Cooper West
Thursday, 5 October– Thursday, 16 November, 2017
6:30pm–9:30pm

Typography is one of the keystones of graphic design, but mastering typographic skills can be a daunting task.

Fear no more, in this 5-week class you will learn about typography on both macro and micro level – such as making good type selections, pairing typefaces, solving intricate typographic hierarchies, fine tuning long passages of text, and building typographic grids. Through a series of lectures, assignments, discussions, and demonstrations, you will complete this class to be a more typographically savvy designer. You will learn how and when to properly use dashes, get acquainted with OpenType features and master the glyph palette. This is not a class for absolute beginners; rather, it is targeted towards designers and students who strive to improve their typography game.

We will be working in Adobe InDesign, so a recent version (CS4 or later) of the application is required.

  • Required Materials
  • Laptop with a version of InDesign CS4 or later
  • Pencil
  • Tracing paper

A workshop offered by Type@Cooper West, a collaboration between Letterform Archive and The Cooper Union Continuing Education Department, and held in the Monotype Classroom at Letterform Archive.
