HGK Basel 2011 Summer Design Workshop: Type Design
Today wrapped up the second week of the 2011 Summer Design Workshops at the Basel Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst. This week’s program was Type Design taught by Philipp Stamm. Philipp guided the students through an intensive 5-day process of designing a single letter form followed by a series of focused modulations—all culminating in a brief animation to demonstrate the myriad possibilities ranging from the discovery of new letters to conceptual seeds for new iconic forms. Below are some photos from the workshop sessions plus some process images from my own project.
