Typography Masterclass wrap-up

A Design Institute of Australia (DIA) Typography Masterclass, run by Dr Louise McWhinnie, Paul Garbett and Mark Gowing, was held recently at the Australian Museum in Sydney.

The class gave ten experienced designers a chance to work closely with leading typography theorists/practitioners. Louise McWhinnie discussed new ways of seeing and appreciating existing typography in the urban landscape through a series of images captured during her typographic road trip across America. Paul Garbett and Mark Gowing explained new approaches and responses to typographic design from both an experimental and commercial perspective, which included a creative exercise in which each participant worked one-on-one with the lecturers.

Look out for the DIA’s next Typography Masterclass in 2012. Below are a few images of the class in action:
