I am looking for exchange study options as a PhD/ArtD student.
I thought this might be an attractive topic for other PhD students or prospective students to map what are the World Wide options.
What kind of schools would you recommend?
Who would you recommend as a leader for PhD thesis?
Who is focusing more on technological research?
Who is focusing more on theoretical or historical research?
Who is focusing more on intersections with other fields?
What is your experience as a lecturer/student/alumni/postdoc?
If you speak French, there is also Atelier National de Recherche Typographique (ANRT) in Nancy.
Thank you for the brief overview. It makes sense to look at type design as craft rather than science. I know this is another discussion
I am focusing on the technological part of type design, let's say artistic tools, rather than the art itself. So part of the study should also cover engineering.
Reading appears to be the best bet. However, it seems that most of the research is happening in their archives — archaeological research, rather than doing experiments with new technology, e.g. Machine Learning.
What do you think about the programmes from a technological perspective?
Is, for instance, Reading suitable for engineering research?
