Attend the typography workshop at SXSW on Saturday, March 8

In addition to the traditional 60-minute session format, SXSW Interactive features a full slate of extended, in-depth workshops at the AT&T Conference Center. Signups for many of these workshops are already completely full. But a few last-minute slots remain open!

Scheduled on Saturday, March 8 from 11:00 to 6:00 pm in Room 103 at the AT&T Conference Center, the Type Tasting Global Lettering Workshop is a workshop where participants will get creative reinterpreting letters inspired by street signs and signage across the globe. Here, particpants can explore and reinterpret typography. For anyone who is tired from absorbing information from panel after panel, this workshop is the place to take a short break. Participants will receive a template and are welcome to customize the letters using markmaking tools and collage materials. No prior knowledge of typography is needed — just the willingness to roll up the sleeves and get messy. No need to bring any materials, unless attendees have a favorite pen or pencil.

Take a SXSW Interactive Venue Shuttle to the AT&T right now and learn all about type!!
