Summer in Paris? Apply now for Type@Paris intensive type design program

Is your summer schedule still up in the air? Have you always wanted to get into type design? How do you feel about Paris?

Type@Paris is once again running their five-week intensive type design program in the beautiful French capital, where students will spend five days a week in class, go on field trips to study one-of-a-kind collections, learn from industry leaders in public evening lectures, and come away having made their own typeface designs.

Does that sound like where you’d like to be this summer? Apply now! If you’re just coming out of a design program or about to graduate, you may already have portfolio work that qualifies. And no, you do not need to be fluent in French: the Type@Paris program is taught in English.

For those of us who aren’t Paris-bound, we’re especially looking forward to the accompanying evening lecture series, which are free events that will be livestreamed and can be watched from anywhere in the world. We’ll share details about how to watch those later in the summer.

In the meantime, you have until March 14 to apply. Go for it!
