During the winter 2014, our students from the ECV Typographic design have to work on a revival of typeface. This project was just a part of a more wider Typographic design course. They really discovered through this project how to draw letterforms, something they never tried in the past.
Last semester, our students from the ECV Typographic design have to work on a revival of typeface: Re-création that’s the word we use in French. This project was just a part of a more wider Typographic design course, see the short presentations about their last semester here.
This master in typographic design started in early 2012, its the second class we have. Our topics cover typography in many area as possible: identity, editorial project, signage, events identity. The group of various instructors that I manage works well. In addition we teach them lettering, and typeface design. We invite also several professional to present they work and share experiences.
