Design for Non-Designers: Type Workshop with Sarah Lawrence

MODA_1 The Basics.jpg

This October, join graphic designer Sarah Lawrence at MODA for her Type Workshop, the third in her Design for Non-Designers workshop series. Let’s talk type. Is it a font or a typeface? What’s that little dangly bit at the bottom of a g? Type anatomy is complex and very niche, but we’ll learn some of the basics that will help you communicate. You’ll find out what kerning is and finally understand a treasure trove of designer jokes, and understand how it’s different from tracking and leading. Most importantly, we’ll learn about font licensing. Did you know you might need to buy a license for your brand fonts? We’ll show you how.


Price per workshop: Members $35 / non-members $40.
Or, if you’re interested in a package deal, you can sign up for all of them with one form! (Members $210 / non-members $240)
