Consequently, ArtCenter developed a plan to become a central and influential force in this burgeoning field by providing a dedicated space to advance the research, teaching and understanding of letterform design and typography.
HMCT was designed to become home and a catalyst for the enhanced study of typography and letterform design. HMCT serves as an educational forum, design laboratory, research center and archive, as well as a meeting place for learning, discussion and the exchange of ideas and skills. HMCT holds workshops and special classes, symposia, lectures and residency programs dedicated to all aspects of the typographic field.structured_gallery2020-10-09T16:06:44-07:00Curtis Fletcher3225f3b99ebb95ebd811595627293f68f680673e
