The digital typography and graphics workshop is integrated into the Graphic Art/Typography/Photography department, and works closely with the Press+Communication division of the HFBK to produce publications. This workshop is concerned with the work involved in the digital design process, especially for typography and classical graphic design. Students learn how to work with digital graphic and typesetting programs as tools in the design process. Professional work with modern techniques will be practised and expanded on, especially during project work in a seminar context and in individual work. With a view to possible publications in print, the Graphics/Digital Typography workshop co-operates closely with the Pre-press workshop and the Materialverlag. At present this workshop is in the process of being planned and constructed. In future it will be a venue for workshop events as well as providing students with digital workspaces with the appropriate peripheral devices.
