HMCT Celebrates 5th Anniversary

HMCT was founded in 2015 in memory of Professor Leah Hoffmitz Milken, a renowned typographer, letterform designer, and esteemed faculty member at ArtCenter College of Design. Dedicated to every aspect of the typographic field, it was created to serve as a home and catalyst for the enhanced study of typography and letterform design.

The Leah Hoffmitz Milken Collection forms the core of the HMCT Archive, a repository for original and rare materials documenting the history and teaching of typography, letterform, and graphic design. Access the Archive virtually: archive.hmctartcenter.org.

“My passion is type. I love the way the forms that we call characters converge to make the shapes we know as words, and I find it fascinating that the same word set in different typefaces can have a different feeling in each one.”

—Leah Hoffmitz Milken
