Custom type design

Over 2 intensive, hands-on workshops in Mumbai and Delhi, Sarang and Satya will teach attendees about the intricacies of typography, with an emphasis on Indian scripts.

Hone your skills in type design from two of the foremost typographers in India. Kyoorius FYIday: Type Studio offers an introduction to creating well-designed, custom typography.

Satya and Sarang each have a slew of typefaces and custom type under their belt, and will guide attendees through their process, using Latin scripts as a starting point and moving into Indic scripts such as Devanagri, Bengali, etc.

Over 2 consecutive Saturdays, Sarang and Satya, will inspire attendees to ‘think with type’ in their own unique way. The workshops will be a combination of type theory, tutorial and in-class assignment, culminating in a crit session on Day 2.

What you’ll learn
Type basics
: An overview of custom type design and typography, the parameters and requirements. Arranging type and how to create a strong visual treatment using only type.

Process: Insight into the techniques and process employed by Ek Type or Indian Type Foundry, two of the foremost type foundries in India.

Indic scripts require a very different mindset, compared to latin scripts, and the challenge is creating type that translates beautifully from one script to another.
