Learning about Letters: how to learn, how to see, how to use

This talk will cover a selection of techniques that Type Camps all over the world utilize in order to help designers and non-designers to understand letterforms better: how they look, how they read, and how they work. With projects that range from non-Latin glyph design to historic hand lettering, from typeface selection for specific applications to letting go of legibility, we guarantee that Type Campers never look at letterforms the same way again. After this talk, we promise that you won’t either.
