Explore type. 

Typography is a fundamental part of Graphic Design, yet it can sometimes feel daunting to know how to use it.

During this one day workshop, you will explore type producing a poster or series of posters that explore letterforms - illustrating a chosen theme only using typography.

What you'll cover

You will explore printed type using our professional print room and presses to create embossed, debossed and printed letterforms.

You will explore tone, composition, hierarchy of type and poster design.

You will leave with a well crafted portfolio ready piece of work.

You will build skills and knowledge which you can use in your school, college or personal work.

What facilities will you use?

You'll work in our fantastic and well equipped facilities at the Blenheim Walk building. Click here for a virtual tour of our University.
