Last month Faber & Lo held an introductory course in font design, where students with typographic affinity were able to learn the basics of typeface development. In this intensive one-day course, we covered the design process from sketching concepts through to the drawing and construction of multiple glyphs on screen. The workshop was held in Sydney, at the inspiring Work-shop premises. It was fantastic to see designers and artists from wide-ranging backgrounds get involved in font design, and we look forward to hosting another workshop in future.
Our passion for letterforms needs sharing, so we’re looking for devoted designers and lettering enthusiasts to come and learn a bit about font design and development. Design practitioners, students, and hobby creatives all welcome – participants will need an intermediate level of understanding of Adobe illustrator.
The workshop will cover letterform drawing, concept refinement, and will then allow participants to start developing their font ideas on screen using Fontlab (free trial download available).
