Spend two weeks studying visual communication – especially typography – in Venice and Rome, the birthplace of Western typographic tradition. Visit the Trajan Column, the Pantheon and the Arch of Titus. Examine inscriptions on Roman buildings and monuments that have long been a typographic ideal. This workshop in design history, theory and practice will be an intensive period of study that enables students to research and analyze the roots of typography, while practicing contemporary design with Italian and American designers and design historians.
