If fonts make us feel, how do you go about choosing the right ones?

Monotype’s very own Marie Boulanger is hosting an in-person, hands-on workshop on 2 June — proposing that we leave type classification based on formal archetypes aside and imagine new, innovative ways of organizing typefaces.

Bonus: all attendees get an extended Monotype Fonts free trial, on us.
