TypeParis is an intensive programme in June and July in the heart of the Bastille area in Paris. With two sessions a day, each led by a tandem of two instructors, you will receive 340 hours of instruction over the course of five weeks. During this period, several visits have been arranged to see notable french institutions and discover the immense and fascinating history of type, including the collections at Bibliothèque Nationale, Bibliothèque Mazarine, Bibliothèque de l’Arsenal, Musée de l’Imprimerie and Musée Gallo Romain in Lyon, etc.
Each Thursday in Paris we will organize the #tptalks22 at Le Tank. Our free talks are open to the public and streamed live to the world.
The programme is in English and covers the learning of know-how in typeface design and calligraphy techniques, type history, and modern software practices. Attendees will gain knowledge through references and perspectives to help understand the key structure of letterforms. Like any creative discipline, type design is highly subjective, and whilst there are important principles that we teach in detail that should be followed, there is a lot of room for one’s own personal taste.
