Something new from CAST: From 10–12 June, we and Politecnico di Milano organise and host an unmissable three-days Cyrillic typeface design workshop.

Cirillico Workshop

Mon-Wed 10–12 June, 2024

On invitation of Associate Professor Alessandro Colizzi (PoliMi Design department), Russian teacher and typeface designer Ilya Ruderman will hold a Cyrillic typeface design workshop open to the PoliMi students and external applicants searching for a new skill.

Cyrillic with Ilya Ruderman workshop at Bovisa Campus will take three days (8 hours each), from 10–12 June 2024, and mix analogue (hand drawing on paper) and digital tools (Glyphs, FontLab, Robofab).

Through historical and contemporary examples of calligraphy and Cyrillic types, Ruderman will illustrate the peculiarities of the Cyrillic alphabet and the typographical needs of the different languages that use it. Then, attendees will work on extending a set of Cyrillic glyphs from an existing Latin character.
