Announcement Postgraduate Degree in Applied Typography
TwoPoints.Net is directing the new Elisava postgraduate program in Typography. Based upon the traditional northern European typography education, this postgraduate program concentrates on typography as a tool for the undertaking of visual communication projects.
Typography, photography and drawing have traditionally been the principal tools of graphic design. The digital revolution has helped to fuse the tools of the trade, which require the subsequent and thorough knowledge of graphic generation tools (software). The democratization of design has prompted the proliferation of designers without the proper qualifications, as well as a gradual impoverishment of the ubiquitous matter of visual communication that surrounds us.
Typography is, moreover, the only tool exclusive to graphic design. (Others tools such as form, color and composition are common to all artistic and creative disciplines.) Faced with a savagely competitive marketplace, the mastery and control of typography are crucial weapons that are the mark of good designers.
This postgraduate course covers the Swiss-Dutch-German typographical tradition and establishes a base for all students serious in their study of communication design or for those already established in this area who wish to acquire additional training. Students will attain the knowledge and technical skills necessary to execute graphic design projects professionally and with typographical excellence.
Classes are to be conducted in Spanish.
