Whisky Type Workshop

The Typographic Challenge: how can one combine multiple typefaces and make them work together in a confined space?

TypeEd, the typography education team from LA, is joining up with AIGA OC to show you how to design the perfect, memorable spirit label.

You won't be double-aging in oak barrels in this intense eight-hour workshop fermented for design veterans. You’ll learn how to achieve typography clarity on a high-end spirit label like a boss and discover how to combine multiple typefaces for both classic and contemporary brands.
