The exercises suggested to students provide them with ideas for exploration and research and often confront them to tangible suggestions touching on the drawing or the space of letters – the layout. Students are lead to think about criteria of quality, readability and contemporaneity as well as the balance between substance and form.




Masters

Professors : Manuela Dechamps Otamendi, Renaud Huberlant

The typography course in Masters questions the creative resources of typography. In this context, typography is seen more as a mean than as an end. The issues of characters drawing are downplayed in favor of the cultural, critical and historical foundation of typography. The course is organised in practical modules of different length and range. Each module gives a specific context blending historical, economical, artistic, societal data that students explore from and with the field of typography. In relation to this specific and documented context, each student is given – or chooses – an area of research and a practical, experimental and contemporary work. Students are never asked to provide a “solution” to a given "problem”, but rather to enrich and to problematize the notions and concepts studied. At the end of the cycle, each student is asked to conduct a parallel work related to and consistent with their dissertation and their thesis in order to provide a typographic explanation.
