Sign Painting Paper Signs for Grocery Stores with John Downer
 
35:16
John Downer taught a day of lettering paper signs, which were an important part of the overall "outer look" of grocery stores and supermarkets. Students honed their letterforms through a hands-on process of practice, personal critique and expert guidance from John Downer, who covered layout techniques commonly used for this specialty type of signage. The video footage seen here was live-streamed to Facebook. Although John has been perfecting grocery store banners for weekly specials since 1969, he has not formally taught this craft in a workshop format. We were honored to help John bring this craft to the classroom, and was the first to participate. The class was be held in the Sign Graphics department at the Los Angeles Trade Tech College. The Sign Graphics program at LATTC is the last remaining trade school in the country with a full blown hand lettering program, as featured in the Sign Painters documentary film. A large portion of ticket sales went towards supporting the Sign Graphics program. About John Downer John Downer is an illustrious American journeyman sign painter, typeface designer and logo designer. Downer began his career as a sign painter in the late 1960s. His work was featured amongst that of others in the 2014 documentary film Sign Painters. His typefaces have been published by Bitstream, Font Bureau, Emigre, House Industries, and Design Lab. Downer studied at Washington State University and the University of Iowa. His work was featured in the Sign Painters documentary, New York Times Sunday Magazine and more.

Typography Dojo: Combining Typefaces with Bethany Heck

Designers are often encouraged to limit the number of typefaces they use and given generic lists of type combinations in place of more in-depth discussion around type combinations and multi typeface systems. Bethany Heck wants to improve the way typographers talk to each other about how we combine typefaces and remove the negative stigma attached to typefaces that use a large number of font families. Join us for a fun conversation about combining fonts and faces with Bethany. Bethany Heck is the Executive Design Director for Platform Design at Vox Media and the creator of the Eephus League brand of baseball scorebooks. She strives to create powerful visual experiences with strong typographic elements regardless of medium, and has worked with the likes of Microsoft, IBM, EA Sports, ESPN and more, and her work has appeared in New York Magazine, the New Yorker, Wired, Smashing Magazine, Print and several other international publications and art exhibitions. ======================== Register for upcoming Typography Dojo Sessions: https://www.crowdcast.io/typeed To learn more about TypeEd, visit our site: http://type-ed.com/ Enroll in our FREE course to learn how to Design for the Reader: https://type-ed.com/sevendays

Typography Dojo: How Typographic Faux Mosaics Launched Nick Misani’s Freelance Career
 
01:13:38
Nick created his first fauxsaic, a mostly-digital, highly-detailed mosaic illustration in a technique he developed while working for Louise Fili. He had no idea fauxsaics would grow into a series, allowing him to transition into a freelance career with artist representation, and fly him as far as Australia to give talks at typography conferences. Since that very first post, they’ve been featured by over 50 design blogs all over the world and have turned into what one blogger referred to as “a newly emerging illustration style” and “the next big design trend.” Nick will discuss the genesis of the project, its growth, and what’s next. As more and more people have started creating fauxsaics of their own and as the demand for workshops and classes increase, he ponders how the series can evolve into a space beyond Instagram. Nick Misani is a freelance designer and letterer based in New York City. He started his formal training by studying architecture and industrial design in Italy, where he was born. After a brief period studying and working in Japan, he relocated to the United States and obtained an MFA in Communications Design from the Pratt Institute in New York City. Nick has worked as an in-house book cover designer at Penguin Random House under Paul Buckley and, more recently, as the senior designer at Louise Fili Ltd, where he reveled in vintage lettering for three years. In addition to period typography, Nick is passionate about decorative arts and old crafts—especially when reimagined in contemporary, unexpected ways. His work has been featured on a variety of online and print publications including Print Magazine, Fast Company, The Dieline, Wired, Quipsologies, Adobe, and Designboom. In 2014, He was named a Young Gun by the Art Directors Club and has received recognition from both the Type Directors Club and the AIGA. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Register for upcoming Typography Dojo Sessions: https://www.crowdcast.io/typeed To learn more about TypeEd, visit our site: http://type-ed.com/ Enroll in our FREE course to learn how to Design for the Reader: https://type-ed.com/sevendays

Typography Dojo: Drawing on Things with Rob Draper
 
01:06:08
During the time Rob Draper was working under the umbrella of brands and agencies as an anonymous designer, he was always drawing, stockpiling piles of sketches of mainly letterforms. After facing redundancy he started to document his personal passion on Instagram whilst working out his next steps. And then whilst working in a prison teaching art and design workshops, Rob discovered that his work was featured in the Daily Mail, Design Taxi and across the international design press. In drawing on objects that shouldn’t really be drawn on, or things with little to no value, his projects 'Coffee Time', 'Create More' and 'Bone China on a Budget' involved spending as long as possible embellishing them with lettering to add value and surprise his fans. Rob Draper is an artist and designer based in the UK specializing in hand lettering for worldwide clients including The Golden Globes, Nike, Gap, Penguin, Bartle Bogle & Hegarty, Pentagram, Harper & Collins, WWF, Halfords, Sustrans, Leo Burnett, Goodtype, The Washington Post & Faucet Face. His work has been covered in outlets such as IdN International Designers Network Magazine, Design Taxi, UC Quarterly, Thames & Hudsons 'Typography' title, The Design Museum London, The Daily Mail and has been featured on numerous design, style, and creativity blogs. ======================== Register for upcoming Typography Dojo Sessions: https://www.crowdcast.io/typeed To learn more about TypeEd, visit our site: http://type-ed.com/ Enroll in our FREE course to learn how to Design for the Reader: https://type-ed.com/sevendays

The Math of Typography
 
01:07:17
We all recognize good design, but how can we execute it? People tend to think designers have to have a natural talent for typesetting, but Michael Stinson and Rachel Elnar believe the answer is in the numbers. In this webcast replay, Michael and Rachel describes and demonstrates their core approach in digital typesetting to ensure optimal reading, all done with simple mathematics. Many of these methods are derived from processes handed down in the phototypesetting years, and the rest is what Michael has formulated on his own while translating the mechanical process to digital (that and refining his process over designing 75+ annual reports during his 20-year design career). It’s what we teach students at TypeEd. Alumni calls are only for TypeEd Alumni, but we are opening this webcast to all our friends (yes, that's you).

Typography Dojo: Making it Readable with Nigel French
 
01:02:22
With so many formatting options to choose from in InDesign, which should we use to enhance the readability of our text? What steps should we take—and what common errors should we avoid—to maximize the chance of our text being read and understood? This session will look at considerations for choosing type, and then, how to determine an appropriate size, column width, and leading value for that type. We’ll talk about how InDesign composes paragraphs, and the importance of going beyond the default Hyphenation and Justification settings, as well as the subtle improvements you can add with Optical Margin Alignment. Rather than chase the type around your document, we’ll look at how you can take charge of your text flow with the use of grids, breaks, and Keep Options. And, finally, we’ll see how we can use a light touch to fix those common composition problems, like widows, orphans, and short last lines, that inevitably occur from time to time. Nigel French is a graphic designer, trainer, and photographer based in Lewes, Sussex, UK. He is the author of InDesign Type (Adobe Press), and more than fifty titles in the Lynda.com online training library. He has spoken at conferences such as PePCon (the Print and ePublishing conference), Adobe MAX, and the Photoshop and InDesign conference. He also writes a type-related column for InDesign Magazine. --------------------------------------------- Register for upcoming Typography Dojo Sessions: https://www.crowdcast.io/typeed To learn more about TypeEd, visit our site: http://type-ed.com/ Enroll in our FREE course to learn how to Design for the Reader: https://type-ed.com/sevendays

Typography Dojo: Translating Scripts with Laura Worthington
 
01:08:29
There are fewer restrictions with hand lettering since it's static, whereas a typeface has many moving parts and can be recombined in any number of ways. How do you create lettering as the basis for a typeface? There are so many considerations: how connections will work, compromises that have to be made to make a typeface work and problems to be aware of ahead of approaching the development of a script typeface. Join us with Laura Worthington as she answers these burning questions and more. Laura Worthington is a typeface designer from Washington State who turned her lifelong fascination with lettering and typography into a business, publishing her first typeface in 2010. She has since published more than 80 typefaces, and designed custom faces for Fortune 500 companies. Laura’s faces are primarily based on her own hand-lettering and calligraphy, a practice she continues to hone daily. ======================== Register for upcoming Typography Dojo Sessions: https://www.crowdcast.io/typeed To learn more about TypeEd, visit our site: http://type-ed.com/ Enroll in our FREE course to learn how to Design for the Reader: https://type-ed.com/sevendays

Typography Dojo: New York City Transit Authority: Objects with Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth
 
01:11:56
New York City Transit Authority: Objects contains over 400 artifacts related to the New York City subway, collected and documented by photographer Brian Kelley. Kelley started collecting MTA MetroCards in 2011, and he quickly became fascinated by other subway-related objects. His curiosity led him on a search throughout the city and online, where he met fellow train enthusiasts, as well as MTA employees, who helped him to source over 2,000 unique objects dating back to the mid-19th century. He carefully documented each of these, and posted them on an Instagram account, @the_nycta_project, which garnered great acclaim from the public. Now, these photographs are available as a hardcover book published by Standards Manual, the New York-based imprint co-founded by Hamish Smyth and Jesse Reed. Smyth and Reed will discuss the project and its vitality to the history of design, with a particular focus on the impact of typography in wayfinding systems. Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth are both former Associate Partners at Pentagram New York, where they worked under Michael Bierut. In 2014, they co-founded Standards Manual with the intent to archive and preserve lost artifacts of design history and make them available to future generations. Earlier this year, they started their own design office, Order, and opened their office/graphic design bookstore in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. --------------------------------------------- Register for upcoming Typography Dojo Sessions: https://www.crowdcast.io/typeed To learn more about TypeEd, visit our site: http://type-ed.com/ Enroll in our FREE course to learn how to Design for the Reader: https://type-ed.com/sevendays

Typography Dojo: Variable Fonts with Jason Pamental
 
01:11:02
For centuries, typography has shaped the way we ‘hear’ what we read. In our web work, though, we’ve had to balance our typographic desires with user experience and performance, knowing that every weight, width, or style of a typeface required a different file download. Variable fonts change that, as they include _every_ width, weight, slant, and other permutation of a typeface, all in a single file not much bigger than a regular font file. Now, beautiful web typography can be crafted to respond to screen size, language setting, even ambient light. In a detail-packed talk, Jason will show you not just how far the new capabilities can take us, but how to make use of them right away. Jason Pamental is a long-time practitioner of web design and development, having first gotten involved with the industry in 1994. Over the years he has led projects ranging from Ivy League and High Tech to the NFL and America’s Cup from both creative and technical roles. His focus on digital strategy has been a natural outgrowth of that synthesis of technology and design. He puts this into practice running the team at Isovera, a Drupal-focused agency outside Boston, MA. After years of having his love affair with type stymied by the likes of font tags, SIFR, and Cufon, the advent of @font-face and the launch of Typekit gave new life and avenues of exploration. Since 2010 he’s been researching and writing on typography for the web and digital platforms: he’s author of Responsive Typography from O’Reilly, articles for Net Magazine, PRINT Magazine, HOW, Typecast Blog, Fonts.com, and more. He’s also a frequent podcast guest, having appeared on The Web Ahead, Boagworld, Non-Breaking Space, and others. An experienced speaker and workshop leader, he has presented at dozens of national and international conferences on the subjects of web typography, responsive design, and design strategy & process.
