Crafting Type is a concentrated 5-day workshop that teaches absolute beginners how to create a typeface. You'll learn the entire font production process: sketching techniques, digital drawing tools, OpenType features, and more. You'll even learn how to earn money with your fonts.

This workshop delivers typeface design skills to graphic designers though a series of exercises; learning by doing. The first thing you will learn is the fatal mistake that all beginners (and even some professionals) make when sketching letters. You will leave on the 5th day with a deep appreciation for the special design process that carries a typeface from its earliest sketches done with pencil on paper all the way to a monster 42 style family made for the latest reading technologies.

The workshop is limited to 50 seats to ensure adequate 1-on-1 instructor time is available. We want Crafting Type to be as accessible & affordable as possible; similar 5-day workshops are typically 4 to 5 times more expensive.
