Allow us to suggest taking an event at TypeEd. Think of it as a typography smorgasbord for the eyes, while learning how to arrange the plates. And before you know it, you’ll be pairing up a couple of delicious typefaces.

All attendees are expected to have some basic knowledge about Adobe design software, have college design training or working experience in the graphic design field. Specific prerequisites are specified in class and workshop descriptions. All participants must be 21 years of age or older. Unfortunately, not all venues have wheelchair access or accessibility facilities. If you have specific needs, please call us to make alternate arrangements.
