Type Making with John Clark
Type design by Aileen Tu.
We are thrilled to announce a special summer workshop for DCA students, with John Clark of Looking:
This workshop takes students through the design process, from overview to concept to creation. Students are given a project and work on creating their concepts without the use of computers. By immersion into a real-life situation (presenting a concept to a client on a deadline), students are able to focus on clearly conveying their concepts rather than spending time on the mechanical or technical aspects of their design. Students experience the creative process as a whole and move smoothly through the stages of concept, creation and presentation.
Here is what Aileen Tu, our AIGA Student Group President had to say about her experience (and see her experience in her design, above):
I had the opportunity to participate in the first Typemaking workshop with John, which was sponsored by the AIGA LA Education Committee, and it was AMAZING! It was a fantastic experience that I highly suggest for anyone--not just those interested in typography, but design in general...
When I took the workshop, I was only halfway through Design Fundamentals so I really did not know that much about design. But this workshop showed me what I was capable of, and inspired me about what I could potentially do with more knowledge and skills.
Don't let your lack of knowledge prevent you from registering. John purposefully did not require prerequisites because your level of knowledge is of no consequence to what you can accomplish in this class.
The workshop is next weekend, July 23 & 24 and enrollment is extremely limited. Register now if you would like to attend! Reg. W8279
