Typography Workshop with Fraser Muggeridge
What is typography and what role does it have in society today? Led by graphic designer and founder of the Typography Summer School Fraser Muggeridge, this hands-on workshop focused on the underlying principles of typography.
Through short presentations and group discussion, participants learned exactly what typography is, its uses and its relationship to other disciplines. Following this, participants engaged in a series of hands-on exercises, using the Design Museum’s current exhibition Hope to Nope: Graphics and politics 2008-18 to explore spacing, lettering and more.
This workshop was aimed at students, designers and creative practitioners interested in learning more about typography and developing their skills.
During the session participants co-produced a new open-source font and typeface. You can now install the font on your computer by visiting Fraser Muggeridge's website here.
Fraser Muggeridge is founder of graphic design company Fraser Muggeridge Studio. Working across a range of formats, from artists’ books and exhibition catalogues to websites, the studio prioritises the content of the artist over a signature style.
