“What is typography? It’s making language visible. Speech issues from people’s mouths, goes off and disappears into the ether, but with typography it’s made solid and sits on a page which can be read by millions of people.”

Adrian Shaughnessy Course Leader

“The course is predicated on the classic RCA notion of developing your own independent practice and teaching is delivered through critique and discussion. Students from all over the world also learn from each other - a huge amount of peer-to-peer learning takes place.”

Adrian Shaughnessy Course Leader

“This course is an empowerment tool for every designer that wants to achieve their potential. Tutors are amazingly talented and passionate designers who offer critiques that nourish creative thinking.”

Mathieu Hoppenot Graphic Designer, France

“The course felt like a breath of fresh air in my career. It was very well structured and tutors encouraged students to explore typography by going out of their comfort zone, without losing a sense of their own personal style. I am very grateful to the tutors for being extremely patient and giving attention to every student, making this experience a very cohesive one.”

Sanjana Mohan Visual Designer, USA

“The feedback and critique from RCA tutors and fellow students was really useful. I've got lots of inspiration and motivation to take back to my professional practice!”
