The typeface design is a discipline that requires specific predispositions and determination. Each student has his/her own artistic temperament, and although not all of them can find themselves in this field, experiences learned in our Studio will be useful in any work associated with broadly understood graphic design. We teach not only an artistic sensibility to letters but also organisation of work, clarity of visual language, systemic thinking and consequences in searching for the most optimal solution. The open formula of the Studio allows to take up topics to which students, regardless of their skills and experience, can implement their own concepts and therefore feel sheer satisfaction with working with letters. Our curriculum stimulates students’ creativity. It also involves a very individual approach. It results in individual variations of typefaces, based on simple ideological assumptions. On the other hand, extended families of typefaces created correspond to the functions defined in the design assumptions.
