We love you, you love us, so we’re doing it all again!
This two-day camp on Indic and Latin typographic creativity is for Indian designers to expand your typographic creativity, increase your typographic knowledge, and put both to use as professional designers. Each day will be filled with a variety of workshops and discussions on various aspects of the industry and we’ll work on a Typervention in the evening. We’ll cover a variety of approaches to creative typography including professional typographic tips, hand lettering techniques, Latin and Indic type design, bilingual typesetting, typographic illustration, and more, all of which will help you to become a better designer and typographer.
We provide all the supplies, so all you need to do is show up.
We have two primary instructors for this camp: Type Camp Founding Director, Dr Shelley Gruendler; along with designer and illustrator Kriti Monga of Turmeric Design.
We also have excellent professional typographers and designers as teaching assistants: Pavithra Dikshit, Type Camp India alum and recipient of the Adobe Type / Type Camp India award; Pooja Saxena, type designer and University of Reading Masters of Type Design graduate; and Zenab Bastawala, Type Camp Australia and Type Camp California alum and recent University of ReadingMasters of Type Design graduate.
