Dalton Maag / Anatomy of a logotype, with Riccardo de Franceschi

Print Club TorinoVia Agostino da Montefeltro, 2Torino
Knowledge of optical principles is fundamental for a successful logo design. One must understand how these principles facilitate readability in different contexts and sizes. Another aspect to take into consideration is the diversity of typographical variables, that help in representing the emotional attributes of a certain brand. During this workshop, the functional and expressive potential of letters will be explored, while offering essential notions for determining proper style in the vibrant contemporary typographic landscape. Each participant will experiment with logo proposals for a brand, based on a specific brief. This process will go through composing different digital fonts, conceptualizing using felt-tip pen on paper, and finding unprecedented visual solutions through experimentation with the typographical variables. Participants will critically analyze their work through group reviews, practising a professional approach to discussing the typographical artefact.

Print Club TorinoVia Agostino da Montefeltro 2Torino
When a designer is faced with the challenge of designing a book cover, he immediately discover that it is a much more complex process than it may seem. What rules to follow? What are the common mistakes to avoid? How to find the right path?
Print Club Torino / Biùtiful Mistakes, with Luisella Cresto
26 Sep 2021
Print Club TorinoVia Agostino da Montefeltro 2Torino
The power of error as a source of inspiration: linguistic, perspective, print. The development of ‘lateral thinking’ and exploration of imprecision are the themes that will be explored as a possibility of knowledge. Thanks to the risograph printing we will enhance imperfections, and overlays, unexpected.
