Experimental Typography Workshop with Denis Grauel
Saturday, 25 June
Adelaide Contemporary Experimental
Lion Arts Centre, North Terrace, Adelaide 5000
Dennis was part of the team who helped in the rebranding of ACE from its original moniker, ACE Open, creating a custom typeface for the renewed brand.
The workshop will take participants through the basics of font editing in a program called Glyphs, which will result in a collaboratively created font.
More than pure practicality, Dennis will show how experimental typography can be used to draw on de-colonial critique and collective approaches to font-making.
Those who sign up for the event need only bring along a computer and the free-trial version of Glyphs. Attendees are also encouraged to bring along old street directories and miscellaneous maps.
