Images of an extraordinary 2019 Type Museum exhibition.

Each year, Peter Cocking’s fourth-year Advanced Typography class completes their semester by creating an “instant museum”: a pop-up installation of exhibits that use typography to communicate something important about typography.

This year, students dug into a wide array of topics, with dynamic, interactive displays that ranged from the history of wood type to the evolution of Chinese characters; from typographic signifiers in heavy metal logos to the role of typography in the packaging and marketing of pharmaceuticals, alcohol, and candy; from the relationship between the human body and typographic form to the future of variable type on-screen.

Below is a gallery of photos from an outstanding opening night, which included lightning-fast presentations from the exhibiting students on their contributions to the show.

Students whose work appears in the photos include:

  • Liam Binnema
  • Byron Camacho
  • Megan Carpick
  • Alex Deng
  • Kasia Lajlo
  • Steve Li
  • Alex Garcia
  • Christine Fwu
  • Tyler Hawkins
  • Madison McDonald
  • Maria Phillips
  • Grayson Taylor
  • Alan Wu + Sky Zhang
