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 not accepting applications at this time. Contact us for more information.

Feb 3, 2021 – Oct 1, 2021

This year’s Typographer-in-Residence program was virtual. The digital format enabled the HMCT to invite five international designers, typographers, and researchers to participate in Mujeres Hispanas y Tipografía, a program that highlights the talent and creativity of Hispanic women. Each independently addressed areas of interest during their residency (February 7–March 8, 2021), culminating with a webinar presentation on March 8, 2021 (International Women’s Day). The bilingual catalog documenting their research will be available Spring, 2022.


The Artist-in-Residence program embeds artists, designers, researchers, and educators in HMCT Archetype Press. The residency offers the opportunity for students, instructors, and the public to attend workshops and learn new skills, approaches, materials, and more from renowned master letterpress printers.
