The people attending this workshop will learn about one way to dissect
the shapes of the latin alphabet, and use this theorical model to make a
typeface together in a fast paced design game. The game will involve
drawing letters on paper, making use of a real life version control
system, and uploading the results to the [Open Font
Library](http://openfontlibrary.org/). No previous experience of
typeface design required.  
By and with [Dave Crossland](http://understandinglimited.com/) (type
designer), [Ludivine Loiseau](%20http://www.ludi.be/) (graphic
designer), [Pierre Marchand](oep-h.fr) (font developer) and [Sebastien
Sanfilippo](http://typeandgouda.wordpress.com/) (type designer)
