Comments

  • Hello everybody, I’m happy to announce a new master degree in Type Design and Typography in Spain, of which I’m the pleasure to be the co-director together with Iñigo Jerez Quintana. It will be held at the Elisava Design School in Barcelona. We gave it the name of “Master in Typographic Creation”. Our aim is to emphasize the role of typography as an essential axis of the graphic design profession and its ability to articulate this profession from a rigorous, creative, open and always evolving perspective. To achieve that, the MTC is articulated through different formats and from multiple perspectives: Type Design, Lettering, motion, history, macro typography, tools… We welcome students abroad, but they should have a good level or comprehension in Spanish. If we get the students we need, we will start in September 2018. Thank you! I invite to have a look at the website and share it if you like. http://graphic.elisava.net/en/mct/

    Great news! The website looks so inviting! I wish I spoke Spanish :(
  • During Typo Labs 2018 Maciej Połczyński announced that there is a “Type and Tech” master degree program in English starting this fall at the Polish-Japanese Academy
    of Information Technology Warsaw.
  • Well, there's another one on Argentina, http://www.fadu.uba.ar/post/357-maestra-en-tipografa-mt

    I've studied there a couple of years ago, and there was two of the best years in my life. 
    And you'll have the pleasure (and the adventure) of living in Buenos Aires.
  • Daniel Leh you are welcome, the most of the teachers speak English :) 
  • Although laureates don’t obtain a masters degree but instead receive a post-college certificate, the Expert class Type design course offered by the Plantin Institute of Typography (under the umbrella of the Plantin Society [Dutch: Plantin Genootschap]) is an alternative for those who can’t study type (design) full-time. 

    Actually, in the past few years a couple of masters from Reading and The Hague followed the course.

    Alfonso, is the education given only in Spanish, or English as well? What level of Spanish do you need to make the most of the education?
  • @Anders Næss Sorry to answear so late. Yes, It's on spanish, and I think you need a quite good level if you want to get the whole of it. There were some brazilians that have a couple of issues, most of it on the written projects. But as I saw with them, I would say the teachers will help you the best they could.

  • I wish some people from Prague's UMPRUM would raise their heads. My last impression sums on this talk https://www.typotalks.com/videos/umprum-variable-fonts/

    If you're in NY, coopertype's extended program is supposed to be pretty good. I've seen guys go in there with little to no experience and come out with some crazy shit.
