Workshop at designforum Vienna

Author: Clara Weinreich

Have you ever wondered whether digital typography needs different rules than typesetting on paper? Or why some brands’ logotypes don’t really look convincing? These and many other questions will be answered in a jam-packed workshop with two respected type designers from the Monotype Studio.

On the fringes of the outstanding type exhibition Finding Forte (September 28th – October 26th, 2022) at designforum Wien, Monotype is inviting communications experts to the three-hour type design workshop Typedesign Experts Share Their Knowledge. On October 6th, starting at 4 p.m., up to 50 participants will learn everything about new trends in type design, what characterizes a good, contemporary typeface, and how a professional word mark is created.

The two-part event will begin with a presentation by Emilios Theofanous, Creative Type Director at Monotype, who will examine the current and future challenges in written communication: technology, aesthetics, values and globalization. This will be followed by an interactive logotype workshop with Friedrich Althausen, type designer at Monotype. He will talk with participants about consistency and form relationships, contrast, proportion and spacing. Afterwards, wordmarks will be designed on paper and then digitized using the best method.
