Get a Taste of the Hangul Type!

Recently, K-culture has become beloved all over the world. Do you want to sketch the name of your favorite K-pop stars with Hangul? Or do you hope to find a good matched Hangul font to pair with your Latin font? This workshop offers basic practical information about Hangul design. You’ll get to know the overall process of a Hangul design project through several case studies. We will also explore the element of Hangul graphemes and the relation of structures. This workshop consists of short lectures, Hangul design assignments (simple words), and feedback for the assigned tasks. This class will provide an easy but informative experience. After this workshop, you may understand better the Hangul design, or maybe you will want to be a Hangul type designer! (This workshop offers the same content that was presented last year at ATypI 2020 All Over.)
