Multicolored-Multi-Layer-Fonts—never heard of? For several years now, courageous type designers have been mixing up “black art” with multi-color multi-layer fonts. Multicolored fonts use an extension of the OpenType format and bring color to reading.

So far, this has been an insider trend. But now Mark van Wageningen is presenting his research on multicolored fonts. He systematically examines how color and type interact. Which contrasts work how. How multicolour, form, style and legibility influence each other. And whether the whole thing also works in small font sizes for continuous text.

In a colourful typographic workshop, he imparts the know-how you need to design and apply multi-coloured fonts. Your key to completely new expressive possibilities in the design of type, typo and text. Analog and digital. Help shape the new mega-trend!
