Go beyond choosing the same fonts from the type menu to creating your own typefaces and become your own type designer.

Get a crash course in designing type from Matteo Bologna, Creative Director of award-winning studio Mucca Design. This (always sold out) 6 hours workshop will introduce you to the basic skills necessary for the wild journey into the super fun world of type design. This class will teach you the basics of designing and generating a typeface with the font-design software Glyphs (Mac only).

In the morning session we will learn the basics of drawing a font, generate the font, and use it in InDesign.In the afternoon, we will add additional letters to the font, learning how to kern them, add diacritics, and produce the combined letters. At the end of the day, we will not have a finished font, but a respectable start and hopefully you’ll be infected with the type making bug.

Matteo Bologna is the principal of Mucca Design, where he also serves as Creative Director. Under his direction, the Mucca Design team has created uniquely successful work for a wide variety of global companies like Sephora, Whole Foods, Victoria’s Secret, Barnes & Noble, Adobe Systems, Bacardi and Target. Matteo is also the principal of the new Mucca spin-off type foundry muccaTypo.
