CVPA was well represented at the TypeCon Boston conference in August with Professors, Alumni and Students. As part of TypeCon, the Society of Typographic Aficionados presented its twelfth annual Type & Design Education Forum, a day of programming devoted to addressing the pressing needs of design educators. Both Professor Laura Franz and Professor Yoon Soo Lee presented.
Professor Franz presented “Web + Typography, Tradition + Technology” which was inspired by the intersection of tradition and technology. She also shared work from her book "Typographic Web Design: How to think like a typographer in HTML and CSS".
Professor Lee presented “Mud Pies, Critical Thinking, and the Addiction of Aesthetics” where she talked about her assignment that explores image making without goals and trusting your hands and eyes to make intuitive judgments.
