The Typographer-in-Residence program embeds artists, designers, researchers, and educators in the Center for a six-week period. The residency offers the opportunity to further investigate the importance and relevance of language and typography in the participant’s professional practice or personal research.

The Typographer-in-Residence spends six weeks in the HMCT studio and participates as a guest critic in one undergraduate typography class; delivers a public lecture; holds bi-weekly open conversations for faculty and students; and presents an exhibition of their work or research.

HMCT is currently accepting applications for the 2025 residency. Applications are due May 31, 2024.
