About The Modules

The Design Educator Typography Intensive offers educators access to some of the most talented typography instructors currently teaching, who will share their methodologies and pedagogies in an intimate environment at one of the most prestigious design schools; honoring HMCT’s mission to elevate and advance the teaching and understanding of both letterform design and typographic practice.

All modules, moderated by Gloria Kondrup, will feature best practices for in-person and online teaching, as well as accommodation for Q&A. Join us for each session as we give away some typographic swag for the most-engaged attendees.
