Melbourne: The Type Code - Design Your own Custom Typeface

Learn Type Design in Old School New School's Weekend Type Design Masterclass

Being a visual system Type is a Code. The DNA blueprint of contemporary Typography isn't digital and never will be. The underpinning system of all lettering and typography is the classic hand drawn alphabet, and thus contemporary Typography embodies a tension between the hand and the machine with DNA roots going back to the earliest systems of writing when signs were first adopted to convey meaning. Every type face is a revival of what has gone before it. It will be a challenging, experimental, dedicated and highly rewarding process, by which you will gain unprecedented advantages in training your eyes, hands and process to thoroughly understand type.
