TypeParis 2024

4 June – 14 July 2024

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.

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.

You will leave the programme with the specialized skills to design professional high quality digital typefaces, lettering and logotypes. In recent years, even with no experience in type design, 80% of the attendees have designed more than one style and all have figured out how to design a family of typefaces to bring style to design projects. Check out the typefaces designed by the attendees as well the ones who received the diploma with distinction!
