Advanced Typography for the Web & Print

This year I’m embarking on a tour of sorts with my workshop Advanced Typography for the Web & Print. The first one is going to be in Bristol on 25th April, hosted at The Forge — a beautiful venue in Bristol’s Arts Quarter — and supplied with great coffee from one of the city’s specialty coffee shops. Lunch is included, too.

From making informed decisions when choosing and pairing typefaces, to understanding the effect spacing has on the reader, right the way through to the intricacies of web font loading, the workshop equips participants with a broad knowledge of typesetting practices, ready to apply across multiple media. Designer or developer, junior or senior, there’s a little something for everyone.

I’ve taught the workshop twice already, once in Zagreb and once at a private session at an agency, and given it in a condensed ‘talk’ format at a few conferences, including Reasons.London last month. The Bristol event is the first one I’m hosting myself and then in the coming months I’m taking it around a few European cities (most of them yet to be announced). Some workshops will be attached to conferences; others, like Bristol, will be standalone events; all will be announced on advancedwebtypography.com.

Hope to see you at one of them!
