"Type as Language," a Summer Residency at SVA (Sponsored)

Join the School of Visual Arts from July 6—31st for the second year of a new summer residency program, “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 the Type as Language studio in New York’s Chelsea district and the opportunity to study closely with renowned type designers Tobias Frere-Jones, James Montalbano, and Daniel Rhatigan. A stellar roster of guest lecturers plus visits to Louise Fili’s world-famous design studio and a letterpress facility, round out the program. “Type as Language” is built around four interrelated one-week modules, covering technical, theoretical, historical, and practical studies. We welcome applications from students and working professionals across all design disciplines.
