Art Center College of Design<

in Pasadena is graciously offering a free workshop with designer & typography Andrew Byrom to all students. The workshop is experimental in nature, but you will be encouraged to work your concept through to a physical or practical solution. Just bring these materials: a pen, pencil, straight edge, paper, & laptop. As mentioned before, the workshop is free, to reserve a spot email pvrontikis@artcenter.edu. The deadline for reservations is October 1st.

Below you can read more information on Andrew and see some of work if you aren’t familiar with it, although the image he produced above for the workshop is a good example of it.

Andrew Byrom is a British-born graphic designer based in Los Angeles.

His current work explores the conventions of typographic design in three dimensions, using unfamiliar applications, materials and processes to define new forms. Although his work adheres closely to typographic principles (uniformed x-height, structure etc.), it also addresses more architectural considerations including physical strength and structural integrity.

This development has led to a natural foray into the field of environmental graphic design, where he has begun collaborating on projects for the built environment.

Byrom’s clients have included The New York Times, Penguin Books, Sagmeister Inc., A+D Musem, AIGA Los Angeles, and UCLA Extension. His work has been exhibited in design venues across the United States, Europe and Asia, and has been honored by The Type Directors Club and the AIGA.

Byrom is also a tenured Professor, teaching typography and graphic design history, at California State University Long Beach.
