Use your senses to develop a visual system for your own highly personal line of ice cream. Create a menu of visual elements and apply them to a unique product family. Use typography, color, and graphic elements to express sensory delight and explore personal culinary themes (heritage, nostalgia, health, futurism, feminism—you name it). Use this one-day workshop to spark your creativity, find new inspiration, and create a chill portfolio piece. Participants receive copies of Ellen Lupton’s latest book from Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, Design Is Storytelling.

This class is created for designers and students with a grasp of the basics and a desire to flex (or loosen up) their typographic muscles. We will be working in Adobe InDesign and/or Illustrator; a laptop and a recent version of one or both applications is required. Access to Adobe Fonts is strongly suggested.

Lupton also serves as director of the Graphic Design MFA Program at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) in Baltimore, where she has authored numerous books on design processes, including Thinking with Type, Graphic Design Thinking, Graphic Design: The New Basics, and Type on Screen.
