FRESH FROM THE HAGUE
Advertising students Ash Maher and Patricia Tamayo and advertising lecturers Ian Thomson and Jason Gemenis recently caught the Typemasters exhibition at the “He Made She Made” gallery in Darlinghurst.
Type posters, representing the work of some of the best emerging type artists were presetented from The Royal Academy of Art in The Haague’s Type and Media program. This is a one-year intensive course where students collaborate and delve more deeply into type design for not only print, but also film, television, video and interactive media.
Opening the Sydney exhibition was the Australian graduate and designer, Troy Leinster, who is one of only four Australians to ever complete the course. His Brisbane typeface was one of the highlights of the 2013 exhibition, which toured The Hague, The Netherlands; Berlin, Germany; Brisbane, Australia; Moscow, Russia; and Sofia Bulgaria.
The Sydney Typemasters Exhibition runs from August 7th to the 15th.
