Workshop at the Esad II

New edition of the workshop I gave at École Supérieure d’Art et de Design of Reims (France). The workshop lasted 4 days, on a basis of 1 day per week. After a talk about the history of early printers leading to a comprehension of the classification of typefaces, the students (in their second year of graphic studies) picked constraints of design at random. They drew letters by hand first and then they digitized them and designed a font by making the shapes behave together. At the end of the workshop, they had to produce a small publication explaining the process of creation.

Then I selected together with each student the shapes that seemed more interesting in his production, and we turned them into a font by making the shapes behave together. At the end of the workshop, they had to produce a small publication explaining the process.
