About

Typography Summer School is a meeting place for graduates of graphic design, wanting to bridge the gap between student and professional and learn more about typography. The school brings together leading practitioners and participants to study, exchange ideas, and investigate the discipline.

As well as running a range of projects within typography, the school acts as a think tank encouraging research and dialogue. This environment provides a forum in which to discuss what typography is, its relevance in design history and the part it plays in today’s society. The school investigates the role of typographic design across ranging mediums, from books to film credits and posters to websites.

The school was founded by Fraser Muggeridge and is independent from any college or educational organisation. This website is designed by Other Means and Fraser Muggeridge.

Bringing together a range of varied tutors will offer each participant a unique experience to learn from and apply to their future work.


Julian Bittiner

Julian Bittiner is an independent designer based in New York, originally from Geneva, Switzerland. His studio practice centers around a search for meaningful new graphic forms and ideas rooted in a specific time and place. Having originally studied painting and photography at Art Center College of Design, after a stint in the corporate design sector he established an independent practice in 2004 and later received an MFA in graphic design from the Yale School of Art where he has been teaching since 2008. Working closely with artists, curators, and institutions, recent commissions have come from Art Papers, Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, and NYU Steinhardt’s 80WSE Gallery.

She currently teaches a typography class at Columbia University Graduate School for Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (GSAPP). She is also a visiting critic at Yale School of Art, Syracuse University School of Architecture, Parsons, and Rutgers University. Yoonjai received her BFA in visual communications from Hongik University in Seoul, and an MFA in graphic design from Yale University. Prior to co-founding the studio, Yoonjai held a director position at New York design studio 2×4 for several years, where she worked with a variety of clients including LACMA, Prada, OMA, Bernard Tschumi, MoMA PS1, Rafael Moneo, and Barneys New York.


Francesca Grassi

Francesca Grassi is a New York based independent graphic designer, creative director, and regular visiting critic and jury member for the MFA program at the Yale School of Art. After graduating in 2007 with an MFA in graphic design from the Werkplaats Typografie, she started a design studio concentrating on working primarily in the cultural field; collaborating with artists, institutions and publishers. Recent clients include: New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA), Whitney Museum, greengrassi, Koenig Books, and Casa Wabi.


Geoff Han

He is a member of the architectural collective common room and is currently Adjunct Professor at Parsons The New School.

Chad Kloepfer

Chad Kloepfer is a graphic designer based in New York. He studied at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and has since worked as the senior designer at the Walker Art Center for seven years, and served as the art director of Artforum magazine for four years. He co-founded the studio Kloepfer-Ramsey with Jeff Ramsey, and in 2013 Hyo Kwon joined making it Kloepfer-Ramsey-Kwon; the studio closed in early 2015. He currently works independently on projects of varying scales and complexities; including the design of visual identities, books and other printed matter, exhibitions, signage systems, and websites.


Other Means

Other Means is the graphic design studio of Gary Fogelson, Phil Lubliner, and Ryan Waller. Recent clients include ICA Philadelphia, Goethe Institut New York, Retrospective Gallery, Ludlow 38, Museum of Arts and Design, and The New York Times. In addition to their client work they teach in the graduate and undergraduate communication design departments at Pratt Institute and have been lecturers and visiting critics at California Institute of Arts, Parsons, Maryland Institute of Contemporary Art, Rhode Island School of Design, School of Visual Arts, and Yale School of Art.


Fraser Muggeridge

Fraser Muggeridge studio is a graphic design company based in Clerkenwell, London. Throughout a wide range of formats, from artists’ books and exhibition catalogs to posters, maps and postcard invites, the studio prioritizes artists’ and writers’ content over the imposition of a signature style. By allowing images and texts to sustain their own intent and impact, each project is approached with an elegantly pared-down aesthetic, with color, typography, paper stock and format playing a key role in arriving at a sympathetic yet subtly alluring object. Fraser teaches on the MA Book Design course at Reading University and on the BA Graphic Design course at Camberwell College of Arts, London.
