Type & the City and Expand Your Type Universe!

By | Typography, Uncategorized | No Comments


Because we like to mix things up, we have some great new offerings for 2018, in the form of two 2-week residencies that can be taken singly or together. AND we’re thrilled to welcome Victoria Rushton and Elizabeth Carey Smith to the faculty! This summer you can stroll around the city sketching type with Dan Rhatigan and Tobias Frere-Jones, or use the 3D printers in SVA’s Visible Futures Lab to take your typeface design into the real world. We’ll journey to Lite Brite Neon in Brooklyn to see what it takes to sculpt molten glass tubes into letterforms (hint: patience plus practice, practice, practice) and attend a spoken word performance at the Moth as inspiration for creating a typographic poster. Priority application deadline is April 1. See you in July!
