Two Sessions make up a full day program
10:00 am – 5:00 pm
“Alphabet is Code” with Nicole Phillips
In this hands-on masterclass with printmaker, typographer and publisher Nicole Phillips, you will explore the different ways letterfoms convey meaning.
Learning to construct and deconstruct characters using a ‘kit of parts’ drawing method, you will undertake 12 drawing exercises to warm up and develop an understanding for the concepts before creating an abstract piece of visual communication that conveys meaning both figuratively and literally.
“Chalk Typography” with Aurelie Maron
Traditionally thought of as difficult and time consuming, typographer, and chalk master Aurelie Maron will show you shortcuts, tips and tricks to creating your own bespoke work of chalk typography.
In this hands-on masterclass with Aurelie, you will develop a variety of approaches to custom logotypes and discover how to render the final piece with chalk. You will also learn how to incorporate traditional flourishes and scrolls to embellish the final piece and create something you will be really proud of.
Both Nicole and Aurelie spoke at the first ever Typism conference late last year, and their unique philosophies and perspectives on typography fascinated audiences. In this one-day master class, you will have the opportunity to work in a small group with one-on-one guidance from two of Australia’s leading typographers.
