ECV New York 2017

ecvny2017 New York typographic tour

We will be back to New York between the 21 to 26 February 2017 with a group of 12 french students! This year mark the fifth anniversary, following very succesful trips in past years we have built a great schedule with the help of many friends in New York and elsewhere. ECV Paris rent the TDC for few days to host the ECV masterclasses, along various visits. Each year, we show to our ECV typographic design master students what typography and graphic design mean internationally, to open their eyes to a certain level of professional quality. The students conducted interviews and wrote a report about their trip in the past five years, they will have to do the same in 2017. We’ve a page on Vimeo dedicated to the interviews conducted. Watch them!
