TYPOGRAPHY & CALLIGRAPHY
Type@Cooper and the Continuing Education Department of The Cooper Union, in conjunction with the Type Directors Club, offers a Postgraduate Certificate in Typeface Design.
Public Workshops, taught by top industry professionals, are offered to provide training in lettering, type history, typeface design, technology and production to anyone wishing to build skills and their knowledge base.
This workshop will provide an introduction to freehand lettering, with an emphasis on its use in branding, advertising, and editorial design.
This course is for anyone who has always wanted to design their own typeface, but is unsure where to start. Or for those who just love type, and wish they knew more about how it works.
Typography is an essential aspect of graphic communication, but the mechanics involved in doing so elegantly can sometimes seem mystifying. This course helps understantding the elements to implement strong typography.
