Polymer Core 1 :: Digital Design for Letterpress

Digital Design for Letterpress is a new course intended for designers, illustrators, or printers who would like to improve their design and pre-press skills for letterpress. We will explore foundational print design concepts and how they translate to the letterpress process.

The following technical topics will be reviewed: editing raster (bitmap) and vector images in Photoshop and Illustrator; scanning photographic images and calligraphy and converting them into vector files; printing multiple colors, including overprinting; and basic principles of digital typography and the composition of images and text together in InDesign.

A useful pre-flight guide for film and photopolymer plate production will be provided for students to take home at the end of the class.

*This workshop will take place on Thursday, November 1, 2018 from 6:30-9:30pm.
