Requesting guidance from type academics
0

Hello. Maybe someone can help me out. I am wondering if any graduate programs exist anywhere for typographic arts?
Or maybe point me towards an edu that has some good type instructors. Thanks a ton!

Thanks. I will check out that thread. I was looking for a institution to learn more about type face design.

When you say go abroad, where specifically are you suggesting?

Thanks!

There are only two MA programs in Typeface Design in the entire world. One is at the University of Reading in the UK, the other is at the Dutch Royal Academy of Art in the The Hague. Some schools in France and Germany also teach type design, but as part of larger graphic design education. A few German schools do this well. Some schools inSwitzerland include it as part of undergrad education. All German design students graduate with MA equivalents
