Editorial Design. Summer. Portugal.




Porto Design Summer School Editorial Course    
July 8 to 20, 2013

Principal Faculty: Jonathan Barnbrook, Hamish Muir, Jessica Helfand and Andrew Howard

Taught by leading design professionals and educators from Europe and the US, the Porto Design Summer School Editorial Course is a unique opportunity to study graphic design within the setting of one of Europe’s oldest and most beautiful cities.

Focusing on editorial design and typography, this intensive two week practice-based course also pays special attention to the city’s rare heritage in vintage shop signage and other forms of vernacular lettering. Benefitting from the expertise and skills of the workshop tutors, participants will explore the creative possibilities of editorial design, examining topics such as narrative structure, navigation, typographic systems, hierarchy and composition, as well as editing and notions of authorship. The aim is to expand technical and conceptual skills and thus guide each participant closer to finding a unique outlook and voice as a graphic designer.

The course meets on a daily basis (excluding Sunday) in an unique space situated in the heart of the city, minutes from the central square and the historic riverside area. A program of presentations and visits is scheduled for each day, while setting aside time for individual project development and critiques. Course fees include tuition, lectures, individual accommodation in a four-star hotel, visits and associated transport, museum admissions, and all program receptions.

More information here. Application deadline 26 May.
