This camp features six days at a serene Pacific Northwest island  at an artist-crafted retreat with typography all day, every day.

Experienced instructors will share their professional typographic knowledge to help you become a better typographer and a better designer. Each day features at least 7 hours of practical seminars and hands-on workshops that cover letterform structure, typeface selection, visual context, linguistic concepts, hand lettering, typesetting techniques, and more.

Our lovely retreat is an artisan-built west coast retreat on a forested ridge with ocean views. The beautiful gardens and nearby ponds and beaches will guarantee relaxation when we’re not thinking type! All meals will be baked and prepared on-island by professional chefs. In short, you show up and we’ll take care of the rest!

We welcome all levels of learners to this camp, including current students, recent graduates, and intermediate and advanced designers and practitioners.
