Typofiction: Typography as a constituent in world-building practices
Masterclass → 9:00 am
- 7th March & 8th March 2022, 9 AM – 12 PM
- Room 166
- Upon Registration Only
The workshop will begin with a discussion around the usage of typography in world-building practices. Participants will be introduced to the concept of asemic writing, a wordless open semantic form of writing, as a tool for questioning systems of meaning. Departing from this, the workshop will then include exercises in hand-lettering and typography design, where participants will be invited to imagine and visualize their own invented scripts. The results will then be compiled into a fictional digital typeface that will include the letterforms invented by the participants. We will then use this typeface to create custom artwork.
