Typography Bootcamp: Master Type, Design, & Layout

About this course Typography is the key that unlocks great design. And whether you are just starting your design journey or you're a design veteran, getting back in touch with the fundamentals can inspire incredible work.  This workshop is a two-part intensive course that covers all of the basic and advanced tactics about working with functional typography. Seating is limited and reserved for the first 20 people to join. The first part is an in-depth online video course, where you'll learn topics like Repetition & Contrast, Working with Grids, Adjusting Typographic Details, and Layout & Composition. The video course normally lasts about seven weeks. But in this case, we'll recommend you watch the lectures over the course of one week, take great notes, and complete the first week assignment only.

The remaineder of the homework will be completed during the in-person event. You'll have access to the online material immediately after purchasing. The second part of this bootcamp will be an in-person lab that spans two full days. You'll get an opportunity to join our team at our offices in Santa Monica, get your work critiqued, and receive direct feedback as you design. We'll provide drinks, snacks, and the incredible workspace here at Blind. Attendees will receive an aditional exclusive project/assignment.  Graduates will receive a certificate of completion to use on their resume and an official website badge.  What you need to bring Other than a great work ethic and fast mouse fingers, you'll need to bring your own laptop with your preferred page layout tools.
We recommend Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator or InDesign), but you can use Sketch, GIMP or other layout software. We will provide everything else. Is parking available?
