Brda, Slovenia

Spend an intensive week of type design in Kaverljag, a tiny village in South of Slovenia! The summer edition of Tipo Brda 2016 will take place in late August. Don’t miss this chance to kickstart or finish your type design, and get valuable feedback from experienced typography teachers and type designers!


Sunday 21 August through Sunday 28 August

We are getting back to the roots this summer. The 30th workshop challenges us to take a look back in the year 1997, when everything enthusiastically began and turned into Tipo Brda by the time. We will do some research and experiments in letterforms as we did in our early days. Welcome all of you who want to design a type your way. You will be given all the support by experienced mentors prof. Lucijan Bratuš (ALUO) and assist. prof. Domen Fras (NTF). So take a challenge and join us to explore the type design at the most diverse methods you can imagine.

Participants can purchase a full Glyphs license at a discount.
