ECV New York 2019

ecvny2019 New York typographic tour

Since 2013, we’re going to New York to visit few studios, foundries, fabulous places and doing masterclasses. We will be New York between the 27 February to 2 March 2019 with a group of 11 french students. Each new year promises to be more exciting than the previous one. ECV Paris rent the Type Directors Club for few days to host the ECV masterclasses, along various visits. Each year, we show to our ECV design & typography 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 years, they will have to do the same in 2019. We’ve a page on Vimeo dedicated to the interviews conducted. Watch them!
