Classes: CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS: CERTIFICATE IN TYPEFACE DESIGN

The Continuing Education Department of The Cooper Union, in conjunction with the Type Directors Club, offers a Postgraduate Certificate in Typeface Design. Top industry professionals lead a highly focused and comprehensive study of key typeface design principles: technique, technology, aesthetics, expression, history and theory. Students explore the foundation of typography in depth by creating their own typefaces in hands-on workshops, while developing a broad understanding of the field through lectures, discussions and research. A series of guest lecturers round out the curriculum, and will allow students deeper insight into specific relevant topics. Participants leave the program with the specialized skills to design professional-quality digital typefaces and lettering. To earn the certificate, participants must attend three core courses during each of three terms and pass a final review of their work. Electives are offered each term, focusing on topics such as pen and brush lettering, Python programming and non-Latin alphabets. Select courses are available to students outside of the Certificate program. Find updated information about the program at coopertype.org
