Sponsored – Typography as Language: A New Summer Residency Program at the School of Visual Arts

SVA Typography Classes

Join the School of Visual Arts from June 30-July 24 for a new four-week summer residency, Typography as Language.

Design a typeface and use it in a project of your choosing in any media—on screen or on paper. Each student will have 24-hour access to a workstation in the Typography as Language studio in New York’s Chelsea district and the opportunity to study closely with renowned type designers Tobias Frere-Jones, Jessica Hische, James Montalbano and Daniel Rhatigan plus a stellar roster of guest lecturers. The program is built around interrelated one-week modules, covering technical, theoretical, historical and practical studies. Studio workshops and field trips will complement class projects and allow students to get acquainted with world famous design studios and letterpress facilities. Applications from students and working professionals across all design disciplines are welcome.
