Tânia Raposo workshop at Letterform Archive

San Francisco, CA 94107
Offered by Type@Cooper West
Thursday, 5 October– Thursday, 16 November, 2017
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
