Brody Neuenschwander _ The Calligraphic Line: Finding inspiration in non-Latin scripts PARTIAL APPROVAL - Free

In this course we will look at Arabic Kufic script and Chinese seal script to find new ideas for shaping Latin letters. Students will be asked to copy these ancient scripts and then search for shapes that can be transformed into Latin letters. Chinese seal script will also suggest new ways of organizing writing, encouraging the student to depart from the linear arrangement of letters that characterizes alphabetic writing. The course will begin with a lecture on the various styles of Arabic and Chinese calligraphic history. There will then be demonstrations to show how non-Latin scripts can be deconstructed and then pieced together again to make Latin letters with new graphic potential.

Maciej Polczynski_variable fonts PARTIAL APPROVAL - Free

The course is a basic introduction to most popular type design software Glyphs. After learning basics of the software participants will learn how to implement Variable Type format introduced in 2016. The VF allow for a linear transition from one drawing to another which is a great tool to be used in various “dynamic" applications. The main objective of the course is to introduce type design software, terminology as well as technology behind the newest trend in type design. The course will be delivered in a form of practical work in the Glyphs App, combined with introductory lecture and sketching session. Hopefully after a week-long workshop each participant will be able to design uppercase typeface with at least 2 masters.

Sara Dang _pedestrian view PARTIAL APPROVAL - Free

Dr Dang Thuy Duong is an architect, researcher, and academic teacher. In 2019 she developed the research method „City in motion” dedicated to the study of the relationship between urban spaces and pedestrian practice. She teaches research methods at Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology. As architect, she designed number of public spaces and buildings in Poland, Kazakhstan, and Russia among others. The course investigates awareness of the urban environment. Through pedestrian practice, we can generate data that show the reality of urban space including live and non-living parts in it.

Students will work with images, sounds, mental maps. The course introduces students to the context of everyday life activities and bringing their own experience into graphic work toward the benefit of social design and empower pede

Katerina Antonaki in collaboration with Vassilis Georgiou _The Agitated Image_Type workshop inspired by lettering found on public space. / 1x1 type experiments PARTIAL APPROVAL - Free

The class is a hybrid of lecture, seminar, and studio work. Students will work in groups of 2-3. The workshop investigates the poetry of things when restrictions apply. The core thought is how we could “rewrite” public social messages and it plays with the notions of representation and urban poetry & social movements, while tackles the idea of how typography in public space could challenge socio -political issues. During the workshop students are asked to be inspired from their city’s typography (e.g. the vernacular lettering that someone witness on the signage of shops, cinemas, theatres, architectural landmarks, handwritten slogans etc) and draw a basic alphabet, then rewrite a political and/or social message of their choice, by creating typographic compositions.

Keiji Matsumoto_Japanese Calligraphy PARTIAL APPROVAL - Free

The purpose of this course is for students to learn the basics of Japanese culture, calligraphy, and apply it to their art works. Class type: Lecture + Practice In the course, students can learn the general history of Japanese calligraphy-from the influence of China to the birth of Japanese characters and the flow to the present day. Also they can see the role of modern calligraphy and what kind of activities it has as art while watching photos and videos of calligraphers. At the practice students can learn the basics: posture, how to hold and move the brush. Besides, they can know the spiritual way of thinking about making works in calligraphy. The goal is to be able to draw the lines you want with a single brush by practicing what is called a RINSHO and letting the movement of the brush soak into the body. Once they understand how to handle the brush, they have to choose one Japanese kanji character , understand its meaning and create their own form using ink, oil and the tool
