experience

I am currently a senior at the American University Dubai, majoring in graphic design. However I have a strong liking towards type design and I was wondering if anyone could recommend good type design firms to intern at.

I was and still am working on a typeface that I created for my senior project.

The typeface that I am working on is based on the Devanagri script however is an adaptation to the latin typeface futura. I have worked independently on the typeface teaching myself how letterforms work. I was determine to get my basics right and therefore flew out to India for 5 days where an Indian type designer ( Prof. Mahendra Patel) guided me as I had no faculty member on campus or in Dubai to help me understand the script and build my sensitivity towards letterforms.

To Whom I may concern,

The international experience will inform the participants about type design and typography and about Dutch design in general.

The V I D E Summer Design Experience 2011 (15.08 until 28.08) will be prepared with the greatest care and will be guided by Donald Roos, graphic- and type designer from Amsterdam in cooperation with his colleague Jacques Le Bailly. They both studied graphic design at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Donald teached at art academies in Rotterdam, The Hague and Tilburg and Jacques teached at the art academy in Rotterdam and was recently lecturer in Breda.
