For five days in July of 2010 I attended the Type Design Intensive course organised by the Department of Typography & Graphic Communication at the University of Reading in England. TDi is a highly compressed, microcosmic version of the successful one-year MA Typeface Design Programme at Reading, and offers participants a taster of the resources and expert tutelage of the core teachers on the MA Programme.
Many thanks to the teaching staff — Fiona Ross, Gerry Leonidas, Gerard Unger, Eric Kindel, Dan Rhatigan, Martin Andrews and Jo de Baerdemaeker. And also my fellow participants — Sofia Holmström, Luciano Cardinali, Gerrit van Bommel, Jussi Jokinen, Henrik Kubel, Julie Chauffier, Adonis Durado, Rana Rjelly, Sheikha Dhaher and Isabelle Kosciusko.
