A crash course in typography, based on the ideas presented in The Ten Commandments of Typography/Type Heresy: Breaking the Ten Commandments of Typography by Paul Felton. We will go through a series of fast lessons and exercises to learn about typographic hierarchy, typefaces, kerning, alignment, and copy flow using InDesign as our typesetting tool.

Participants are recommended to open InDesign and tinker around for an hour or two prior to the workshop—a little familiarity will go a long way.

Brooke Irish is a Los Angeles-based graphic designer. By day, she works to create identity systems for companies and non-profits as a freelancer. By night, she designs books, posters and other lovely things as 1/2 of Father Madre.

Our program costs go directly towards compensation of the instructors and staffers who work the event. We want to make programming as accessible as possible to anyone who is interested, however, so we offer volunteer opportunities in exchange for membership, as well as free community tickets to each program (number varies depending on capacity of the class). Email info@wccw.us for more info or to find out more about these opportunities for a specific event.
