Martin has taught typography at several art schools and has given lectures/workshops around the world. He has written articles for many magazines including page, 2+3d, and eye, as well as contributing to several books on typography.


A practical workshop, especially created to suit all levels, for anyone interested in learning the fundamental principles of type design. Even if you are an experienced designer, there will certainly be something to discover for yourself and improve your skills through the immediate guidance of Martin Majoor.
