Bilingual Publication Design

October 2019

    Brief

    At “Bilingual Publication Design” workshop, we take you on a fascinating journey to explore the typographic integration of Latin and Arabic texts in a context of poster design. It brings to focus many anticipated challenges such as the selection of compatible fonts, maintaining a well-balanced and well-designed graphical composition, and communicating them in two languages. The workshop encompasses both the theoretical and practical aspects, where case studies and methodologies will be applied with participants to be utilized later during the poster design exercise under the supervision of the instructor. 

    Workshop Outputs:

    • Develop the theoretical and practical skills of participants in dealing with designs in dual languages.

    • Participants will be able to practice the gained knowledge in future projects.

    Workshop Outline:
