We're opening our classroom doors for you to get your burning questions answered about Type West, the west coast's only yearlong certificate program in type design!

This event is a fun, low-key opportunity to meet current students, grads, instructors, and Letterform Archive staff, who will be there to share details about the application process, programming, scholarships, and more.

As you develop your craft with us, you’ll learn from our top-notch instructors, leaders in their fields. Their deep understanding of type, lettering, and letterform history will help you thrive and find your own style. As an in-person scholar, you'll also have the opportunity to dive into the treasure trove of the Archive’s vast collection of resources, guided by our team of expert archivists.

Best of all, you'll study amongst a supportive group of fellow students who are also there to help you create your own unique typeface and family. Join us.

The Type West 2024 application period launches Friday, September 29, and ends on Monday, November 6. Sign up for updates here.
