New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I am planning to write my Masters Thesis about corporate typography and its effects in brand communication and I'm in dire need of some help in finding any kind of theoretic basis for my work.
I have a Bachelors degree in Graphic Design, i feel at home, when it comes to the history of typography.
There is a lot of material about the history of type anatomy of type etc. However im doing my Masters in Social Sciences, and there is very little, if any theoretic work about the effects of typography in visual communication or brand communication.
Have been seeing this font used in the SVA Masters in Branding ads and was curious if anyone could tell me if this is a typeface for sale or if there is anything close to it? Pretty sure it is a custom deal, but was curious if anyone could point me to something similar. More interested in the shapes/structure I guess than the transparency/overlaps. Any help is appreciated!
Anyone know what font BODYMASTERS is? Thanks!
My application recently got denied for a masters in type design program. I learned from one of the jurors/professors that my portfolio needed to be 'less pragmatic and ordinary commissioned work'. He further noted that they were looking for work that contained more personal and experimental projects. This was my first time applying for a masters program and I unfortunately created my portfolio based on projects that I've done as an in-house graphic designer.
I want to reapply for the program next year but before I do, I want to ensure that I know how to best approach the creation of my new portfolio.
I have recently graduated from a design program (Concordia University, Montreal) and I am looking for masters abroad that would combine both type design and typography (preferably a one-year program).
I was wondering if anyone has information about the quality of the masters in Advanced Typography taught at the EINA school in Barcelona. Apart from their official website, I have trouble finding extra information and comments about this program.
I am also considering KABK's "Type and Media". However, from the information I have been able to gather, it seems like it much more focused on type design, and much less on typography, am I correct?
Finally, any thoughts about the Centro de Estudios Gestalt (Veracruz, Mexico)? Or other suggestions?
Thanks a lot!
