From an idea by Giancarlo Iliprandi, the course trains communications designers in the design of typefaces and consists of lectures, project work and seminars.
In particular modules are planned on the theory of traditional and contemporary typography, FontLab software for the design of characters and methodologies for the control of the specific design process. In addition to these modules, there are those on the preparation and development of project work, but also communications seminars related to case studies of cultural and practical interest and meetings with experts and type designers.
The course is aimed at students and graduates in Communications Design disciplines, young designers and visual communications professionals.
The course will be bilingual and will be held in both Italian and English.
Admission to the course is limited to a select number of participants and is subject to a selection process that will be carried out via a direct interview with the teachers who will run the course.
Before the interview, candidates should send a CV describing in brief their training and any professional experience. Admission to the course requires a good knowledge of vector drawing software or at least a minimum experience in the professional field.
The course lasts 20 days, for four hours a day. Lessons will be held every day from Monday to Friday from 16.00 to 20.00.
The course costs € 1200 + VAT (22%).
