Just a quick post to let everyone know that SoTA is doing a call for entries oriented to young type designers (under 30 years of age):

The Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) is pleased to announce a new award for young people who have created original work in type design, type history, or other areas related to typography. The award recognizes a person 30 years of age or younger who shows both achievement and future promise in the field of typography.

The submission deadline is April 30, 2010. Hurry! More information on SoTA’s newsletter.

Typeforge links updated

Typeforge links full list spreadsheet @ Google Documents

As you might have noticed, I’ve been slowly updating the Typeforge links. This weekend I did a quick search for online courses and syllabus that I could quickly reference to start preparing for a couple of upcoming workshops.

I’ve updated the section to the right, and I am finally publishing the Google Spreadsheet here: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=ttoR06EZXHq-Ixk1J75Z9LQ&output=html, although it is still only in Portuguese…

As mentioned before on my portuguese Designlab Blog, I’ve realized that good and detailed syllabus are hard to find. I could only find a couple of them here in Portugal — one is from DeCA (my own department, class taught by Olinda Martins), and the other is from IPCA (taught by Cláudio Ferreira, although rather short on the details). It seems that the most prestigious schools are not very keen on publishing their syllabus online…

So, if you know of course that has it’s syllabus publicly available, please send me the link for me to update this document.
