Stencilmania: Understanding Type Design as a Tool for Graphic Designers

New dates!
Hosted by the Letterform Archive

Saturday-Sunday, September 26-27, 2020

10:00am–6:00pm PDT (19pm-2am CEST)

Stencil Type Design has been proven as a great way to explain and practice the principles underlying the design of typefaces.
In this workshop, I will offer participants the possibility of creating the main characters of an alphabet constructed with a limited amount of elements. We will design typographic characters to compose a word, a message, or a logo, that will serve later, to cut out stencils in a resistant material to be painted or printed. It can be solved manually or digitally.

Learning Outcomes
—To understand and practice the principles underlying the design of typefaces.
—Set the basis for creating a full alphabet from a few existing characters.
—Reflect on the role of typography in the field of identity and experience the design of custom types. All together can be understood as ‘type design as a tool for designers’.

Preparation
All participants will have to do preliminary research about stencil sentences or words found in the streets or in articles or old catalogs. They will serve as the starting point for the project. From that material, we will extract the alphabets to work on, and define the parts, adapting the work process to each style.

Required Materials
—Drawing materials: pencil, eraser, and ruler
—Supports: white paper, graph paper, onion paper.
—Optional: Laptop, scanner, photocopy machine, lightbox.
In the first two sessions, we will all be sketching by hand, the next two can be manual or digital drawing. In case the participant wants to continue digital, he or she will have to be skilled and autonomous in vector drawing design.
