Graduate Diploma in Typography, from the Creation of the Letter to Publishing


The course focuses on two objectives: the design of fonts and the design of pages based on the typography used.

Modules 1 and 2, dedicated to the design of fonts, aim to delve deeper into the history of letters and their forms through practical subjects such as Calligraphy, Lettering, Digital Constructions and Alphabetical Architecture, together with theoretical sessions in History of Typography and sessions in Palaeotypography, Font Formats and Pyton Programming.

Modules 3 and 4 focus on the study of the use of typography as a graphic element in the design of pages and the structuring of publications through practical subjects such as Press Design, Magazine Layout and Art Management, together with theoretical sessions in History of Pages and sessions in Infography, Typographic Cannon and Orthotypography.


This graduate diploma aims to provide education and research in the field of typography, interpreted here in its broadest sense. The programme is divided into two complementary modules: Form of the Letter (module 1) and Internal Compositional Structures of the Page (module 2).
