Event Description

Typography Summer School is a meeting place for graduates of graphic design, wanting to bridge the gap between student and professional and learn more about typography. The school brings together leading practitioners and participants to study, exchange ideas, and investigate the discipline.

As well as running a range of projects within typography with real clients and budgets, the school acts as a think tank encouraging research and dialogue. This environment provides a forum in which to discuss what typography is, its relevance in design history and the part it plays in today’s society. The school investigates the role of typographic design across ranging mediums, from books to film credits and posters to websites.

The school was founded by Fraser Muggeridge and is independent from any college or educational organisation. This website is designed byOther Means and Fraser Muggeridge.

The number of participants is limited to 25 per week (50 in total). Applications are open until 1 May 2013. Please apply to Typography Summer School London by sending a pdf portfolio and cv (or website reference) to: london@typographysummerschool.org
