Typeworks

The participants will have the chance to explore and familiarise themselves with the design of the Greek script. They will have access to original material, resources and an introduction to contemporary approaches in today's Greek typeface design.

The participants will take part in sketching and writing exercises, and receive guidance and feedback on their own designs. We'll explore the extended Greek set and we'll talk about its role and its contemporary uses.

A main part of the workshop will also focus on how to choose a direction for our Greek design depending on the brief and how we could use the broad variation of the Greek letterforms as a source of inspiration even for the Latin script.
