4. Summer course Typography 2018. Atelier t, Bierbeek (BE).
"Typographic Summer Program" with Dafi Kühne is an intense 2-week summer program in Switzerland for international graphic design students and professionals. It started in 2016 with one summer session over 2 weeks and established over the last 3 years to a 2 session summer program.
The workshop’s goal is to bridge the gap between analog design and production tools and professional contemporary typographic posters. Students will go through a number of analog tasks to experience the layout qualities of simple type-only layouts. All the experiments and layout exercises will be realized with traditional letterpress printing presses and physical type. Through this very slow but accurate analog process, students will learn to put emphasis on concept and micro typography.
This program is a great opportunity for students to see and learn first hand from one of the few internationally successful contemporary letterpress poster designers. Besides of a lot of process results, sketches and small experimental prints, students will collaborate to produce each a letterpress printed typographic poster printed with
a variety of possible production tools like physical type
(wood & lead), chipboard, laser cut MDF, linoleum,
hand cast Ludlow type lines, and many more…
Every aspect of the design process that is taught and intensely trained with the tutors in an analog way will be easy to translate to the contemporary design practice for
the students' future career.

In September last year, unexpected even for me, I decided to team up with Charlotte Van Lancker to set up a letterpress studio in Gent. Being a volunteer at the MIAT printing department for several years and taking part in Letterpress Workers event gave me a chance to learn the skill from fellow printmakers. Printmaking was always something I wished to keep myself busy with and opening up a studio with a fellow designer seemed like the perfect opportunity to me.Read More
