This one-day workshop introduces students to Korean typography. The unique Korean writing system, Hangul was introduced in the mid- 15th century. Its letters are composed of a combination of lines and circles only, combined to form 12,000-odd phonemes. The typeface represents Korean language and culture, but is also an adaptable means of communication accessible to all. This course explores the impact of visual communication with a written language by examining its lettering, classifications, and connections. Through lectures, demonstrations, in-class studio work, students should gain an understanding of the design and significance of Hangul.
Please note that courses may fill up early or be cancelled due to low enrollment. Students are encouraged to register early, at least ten (10) days prior to the start date of the course.
