Type and Characters – the history of type design at CCA
I recently had the honor to be included in Types and Characters (read my write up for Glyfyx here), an exhibit of the history of type design at California College of the Arts.
The CCA Advanced Design Exhibition class taught by Jon Sueda (how I wish the class was available to me when I was at CCA) curated the exhibit, featuring type designed in Rod Cavazos’ Type Design Studio class (mine included). It also showcased work by two of my favorite professors Rod Cavazos (of course) and Bob Afouldish. I had a huge “design crush” on Bob in school, I think that’s why I freeze up whenever he’s around me. Ugh, I’ve GOT to get over that.
One of my favorite things was how they displayed the student sketches from 7 years of Rod’s Type Design Studio.
And here’s a sample of the typeface I designed in Rod’s class in 2007 which made it into their exhibit catalog.
