“StencilMania”: Stencil Lettering
& Type Workshop at TDC New York

 

“StencilMania” Stencil Lettering & Type Workshop at TDC New York

 

I will be conducting a workshop in  New York City, at the headquarters of the TDC (Type Directors Club). 

—DATE: February 1, 2020
—TIME: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm (8 hours)
—LOCATION:
Type Directors Club
347 W 36th St Suite 603
New York, NY 10018 United States

Inscriptions a the TDC Site

————————————————

Goals
—To help participants to understand and practice the principles underlying the design of typefaces.
—Set the basis for creating a full alphabet in the future.
—Reflect on the role of typography in the field of identity and experience and the design of custom types, which altogether can be understood as “type design as a tool for designers.”
Required Materials
—Drawing materials: pencil, white pencil, and rubber
—Supports: white paper, graph paper, onion paper, acetate semi-rigid, black cardboard.
—Tools: Scalpel cutters, scissors, rulers, cutting surfaces.
—Other: Laptop (in case you want to go digital), photocopy machine, laser cut printer.
Exercise
We will design typographic characters to label a word, a message, or a logo that will serve to cut out stencils in a resistant material and paint or print them later, as a poster or in a tote bag. It can be solved manually and based on photocopies or with digital drawing.
Methodology
All participants will be expected to do preliminary research about stencil sentences or words found in the streets or in articles or catalogs. It will be important to have good frontal photos and bring the prints to the classroom. These will serve as a starting point for the day’s project. From this material, we will extract the alphabets to work on and define the modules or parts, adapting the work process to each style.

Schedule (8 hours)
8:30 am – 9:00 am: Introduction
9:00 am – 12:30 pm: Drawing work
12:30 pm – 1:30 pm: Lunch break
1:30 pm:-4:00 pm: Drawing work and composition
4:00 pm – 4:30 pm: Presentation and exhibition

Participants
Participants will work in groups of 2 people, and do projects just by hand and photocopies, or by hand and computer – if so, the attendees need to be skilled in vector drawing design.
