Type Craft Summer School

No plans this summer? From 16 to 26 August 2021 Graphic Matters and Keep An Eye Foundation present the Type Craft Summer School. The masterclasses are by Studio Dumbar, Underware, Autobahn, Edgard Claes and Grilli Type.

The ‘Type Craft’ Summer School consists of five multiple-day masterclasses entirely devoted to typography in various ways. The use of signs and text goes back centuries and still plays a major role in how we transfer information and how we design it. During the masterclasses, experts will share their knowledge and skills on current developments.

Each masterclass will be given by a leading international designer.
