AUD Type workshop Programme

During the workshop, I will cover various aspect of type design, from handling of Béziers curves, coherence versus contrast, metrics and spacing, use of FontLab, consideration on font formats, legibility, to letterforms structure, importance of writing behind letterforms, etc.

In order to structure the workshop, I propose that schedule built on two projets running in parallel. Indeed, nothing is static, and we will adapt to the everyday situation.

My biggest wish, following the Uqam workshop in Montréal, last May 2004 is that you, students will post some comments about what you learn, discover each day. For that, the two main groups will receive separate access to the publication system on the web to publish any news and images they want. For now, a quick hello from the comments field from you before the launch of the workshop can be a good start!
