About This Class

I’ve recently turned my passion for typography and travel into a new hobby: sign hunting. This class is for beginners interested in typography, signage from by-gone eras, city-trotting and hobby photography.

Students will be introduced to a brief history of typography and learn how to scout the best locations to discover oft-ignored signs and found type artifacts. They will use their photos as inspiration for the design of their class project: a set of trade cards, which can be shared with classmates, friends and family.
