In light of recent public health updates regarding COVID-19, the Elliot and the Type Directors Club have decided to postpone this workshop. We have refunded the Eventbrite registrations, and will be in touch about Elliot’s new workshop date.

In this deeply detailed but varied all-day workshop, Elliot will cover a huge spectrum of typographic knowledge, from foundational best practices and definitions to the very latest techniques and technologies for setting great type across multiple media.

Drawing on his extensive experience designing for print and screens, Elliot will guide you through the intricacies of using type in a deliberate and effective way, from choosing and pairing typefaces with emotional and technical goals in mind to optimising readability with spacing; from constructing a typographic system to loading fonts on the web; from using the latest OpenType features to designing brands with the help of Variable Fonts; from the ins-and-outs of modern font licensing to where to find your next typographic inspiration.

Elliot Jay Stocks is a designer and musician, currently serving as the Creative Director of Maido. He was previously the co-founder of the lifestyle magazine Lagom, and is known in typographic circles thanks to his time as Creative Director of Adobe Typekit and founder of typography magazine 8 Faces.
