Teaching Type: A Panel Conversation on Typography Education
On April 1, 2017, Design Incubation brought together a panel of educators to discuss innovations, challenges and best practices for teaching typography. The panelists talk about the role of typography in the continuum of design education and identify areas where traditional programs experience shortcomings and challenges. Discussion focuses upon which fundamental skills should be taught and whether the way typography is taught needs to change in a screen-based world. Panel moderators Liz Deluna (St. John’s) and Doug Clouse (Fashion Institute of Technology). Panel includes Juliette Cezzar (New School Parsons School of Design), John Gambell (Yale School of Art), Thomas Jockin (Queens College CUNY and Fashion Institute of Technology), and Amy Papaelias (SUNY New Paltz).
Hosted by Type Directors Club.
