The Typographer-in-Residence program hosts designers, artists, and educators who are investigating new ideas through their professional practice or personal research. Their work reinforces the importance and relevance of typography and language in visual communication. This year, the HMCT is pleased to announce that Lucienne Roberts will serve as our 2018 resident typographer.
Lucienne is director of graphic design studio LucienneRoberts+, making accessible, engaging work with a socially aware agenda. She is also co-founder of GraphicDesign&, dedicated to creating intelligent, vivid books and exhibitions that explore how graphic design connects with all other things and the value that it brings. Influenced as much by feminism as Swiss typography, Lucienne’s studio projects span identity, exhibition and book design and have most recently extended into exhibition content generation for the Science Museum Group. Lucienne is co-curator of Hope to Nope: Graphics and Politics 2008–18, a major new exhibition at London’s Design Museum. A GraphicDesign& originated project, the show and book of the same name examine the vital role of graphic design in relation to the last decade. The 2d exhibition design and book are designed by LucienneRoberts+. Lucienne is a member of Alliance Graphique Internationale.
