finals

Final Title: Type Icon

Final Description:

The Type Icon convention is about icon making with typographic symbols and creating icons for phrases (shortening speech based on phoetics).

Workshops will include
The Anatomy of a Letter: finding visual connections between line and shapes in the real world with glyphs and letter forms.

Visual Rudimentary Phonetics: Lose all connection with written language to focus on the relationship between pronunciations of syllables.

Re-create the language: This comes after the Visual Rudimentary Phonetics, where participants are able to experiment creating new languages based on their interpretations on syllables.

Anatomy of the Human face: Learning the proportions and structure of expressions in the human face. This will include figure drawing and painting.

The Expression: Learning to pull characutures from faces.

Typing Icons: Creating icons using typefaces as the palette to create portraits of people and objects.

Learning the lingo: For those new to the internet and texting, this will be a class to solely teach phrases and emoticons to get out the message faster.

You could be ubies that don't know internet lingo, teens/students/typographers and anyone else to create icons to be used online on a regular basis, and to also designate icons to emotion typed. Come to (title plugged in here) for some type-icon fun!
