Education · Type · October 27th, 2006 ·

Due to my recent task of teaching typography, I was looking around for courses and experiences in that domain. This drove me to Ellen Lupton’s website, teacher at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA): www.designwritingresearch.org. There, in an impressive generosity, you can consult her current syllabi and exercices of hight quality courses.

She’s is also a responsive designers awared of the problematic of proprietary fonts in design. Her website host a free font manifesto page: http://www.designwritingresearch.org/free_fonts.html

Lupton wrote several books on teaching typography. The manual “thinking with type” is a reference in the field. This book is accompanied by a rich teaching website: thinkingwithtype.com which gives number of exercices and “adaptative” syllabus.

She’s editor in Freefontmanifesto Blog

    What a good news she did that (and great find)! The text of her lecture ‘Univers Strikes Back’ is really helpful in many respects… can’t wait to see more serious responses to her weblog.
