Typography Summer School is a meeting place for graduates of graphic design, wanting to bridge the gap between student and professional and learn more about typography. The school brings together leading practitioners and participants to study, exchange ideas, and investigate the discipline.
As well as running a range of projects within typography, the school acts as a think tank encouraging research and dialogue. This environment provides a forum in which to discuss what typography is, its relevance in design history and the part it plays in today’s society. The school investigates the role of typographic design across ranging mediums, from books to film credits and posters to websites.
The school was founded by Fraser Muggeridge in 2010 and is independent from any college or educational organisation.
Daily talks from each visiting practitioner.
Individual and group assignments.
Seminars, tutorials and informal discussions.
An evening of film screenings.
Advice on different career paths within typography.
Fraser Muggeridge is joined by a visiting practitioner each day, from specialised areas of typographic design practice and educators at distinguished design schools. The 2019 tutors and speakers in London are A Practice For Everyday Life, Catherine Dixon, Europa, Frith Kerr, Fraser Muggeridge, OK-RM and David Pearson. Bringing together a range of varied tutors will offer each participant a unique experience to learn from and apply to their future work.
