Our type design program is now two complementary courses, Practica One and Two, that can be taken back-to-back or separately, totaling 24 weeks in all (with a nice break in between).

Find all the details plus tuition on our website:

Practica One: Mechanics

— Live, online
— 6 weeks
— Starting Nov 8, 2022

Practica Two: Expansion
— Live, online
— 18 weeks
— Starting Jan 19, 2023

Practica One focuses on getting your foundation in order and learning about spacing, proofing, drawing with Béziers, making optical corrections and more. Practica Two goes deeper, focusing on building a more reflective type design process and expanding your typeface into a multi-weight family via interpolation.

Both courses are taught by professional type designers who will give you personal feedback. You will also enjoy visiting lecturers and critics from some of your favorite type designers.

Enrollment and applications are now open!
Early bird discounts are available for both courses until October 9, 2022.
