Would you like to get to know new design approaches, specific techniques and work intensively on your own projects for three days? This year’s workshop leaders will make you leave your comfort zone and show you new ways of designing. Playfully, they’ll broaden your horizon and challenge gridlocked patterns. You will work on your own designs and get profound feedback.
The workshop with Selina Bernet and Marc Rouault is themed around the topic of modular typefaces. Participants will develop a modular font – first analogue then digital. The workshop will initially focus on a playful and constraint-led approach to developing ideas for a new font. From there, participants will work towards consistent alphabets, ready to be used.
Bernet works as a type designer at Studio Laurenz Brunner. Rouault is an independent typeface designer based in France.
Take the opportunity to meet designers from all over the world during the workshop and the Weltformat Graphic Design Festival. The workshops not only offer valuable inputs and inspiration for your own work but are also a chance to meet, exchange and network.
