TypeJuly - Manuel Krebs (Norm)
When the day ends and the night begins, there is the moment when it is not clear which of the two it belongs to. In French this moment is called ‘entre chien et loup’, between dog and wolf. In a way, this moment also exists in typography, the writing is the day and the image is the night. And exactly so there is the flowing border between the graphic designer and the type designer, because from when on is the graphic designer a type designer and the type designer a graphic designer? This workshop is about these grey areas.
Graphic & Type Designers (the good, the bad, the ugly).
This workshop focuses on the development of modular fonts. An inventory of modules that allow, in combination, the creation of letters, will be developed. The modules are the molecules of the project. To apply the modules, tools will be developed to create and reproduce them. The aim is to have control over the entire production process (literally) in one’s own hands. Thus, conventional working processes will be questioned and the direct influence of the tools on aesthetics will be made clear. The process is determined by the pairs of opposites experiment/curiosity, vs. order/structure.
EUR 620: If you register for more than one workshop, the price from the second onwards is € 530.
