GLA – AMD Type Workshop
Type Writers Workshop is a collaborative project, taking place in Ahmedabad and Glasgow at around the same time. The workshop will take its starting point from Turkey red, and the common ground between designers working in Ahmedabad and Glasgow today.
In Ahmedabad, working with Master Blockprinter Soyab Kathri and Graphic Designer Emlyn Firth, participants will work with font blocks in a range of Devanagari script to consider ideas around self, identity, and communication through design and print.
In Glasgow, led by designers Neil McGuire, Edwin Pickstone and Ruth Kirby, participants will devise and develop their own font, and produce a set of words that speak about who they are.
Everyone involved will have an opportunity to discuss their work in progress with their counterparts via various channels (Skype, Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram). The outcome of the workshops will come together in an exhibition of work in both Ahmedabad and Glasgow in January 2018.
