AIGA / LA Education Committee Presents Type Making: Overview, Concept, Creation at Looking Studio with John Clark
This two-day all-day weekend workshop is February 19 & 20, 2011. Deadline to apply is February 1.

John Clark is the founder and design director of Looking. Before establishing Looking Studios, Mr. Clark developed an extensive background in design direction both here and abroad: Büro für Visuelle Kommikation, Rolf Müller, Munich; GNU Group, Sausalito and Houston; and Cross Associates, Los Angeles.
John Clark believes in the importance of the conceptual development of original form, and that the integration of typography and image is essential to compelling communication.

Independently, Looking has lent support to a series of community issues with a wide variety of award-winning posters, including L.A. Public Library Adult Literacy Program. (R)egrets?, Ballona Creek Wetland Action Committee, Save the Environment(!), and the Sierra Club.
Apply if and only if you can attend the whole shebang! The schedule is 8am-6pm on Saturday and 9am-6pm on Sunday. Please note AIGA requires that you must be a current AIGA member. We pay for one year of student AIGA membership when you pay the candidacy fee for the 16-course DCA program. You can also renew or join on your own directly through AIGA.
Still interested? Please email a letter of interest and at least one idea about how you will share what you learn with other students upon your return to: dca >at< uclaextension.edu. Please note the $25 contribution requested for the workshop.
To pay your DCA candidacy fee go here. (Paying your fees in no way suggests that you will get the spot, but is a requirement to participate. Please don't hedge your bets and apply to the workshop without being an AIGA member, with the idea to pay if accepted. You must be a member at the time of your email.)
To renew or pay your AIGA membership go here.
If you have any questions, please ask. This is a fantastic opportunity and there has already been a ton of interest, which is great! Please keep that in mind when emailing your application and ideas, so that you can be competitive.
Thank you for your interest and good luck.
