2 The main objective of the postgraduate course in Typography and Language is to train the typeface designers of tomorrow. Each session lasts for 16 months from September to February and enrolment is open till July. The course covers typeface design, the history of typography and an introduction to linguistics. The students carry out a typeface design project linked to their research topic on which they write a paper. The research cycle encourages the study of multiscript typefaces and typographic families. The permanent teaching staff are bilingual (French English). Most of them are working professionals who continue to pursue their careers in France and abroad and also lead research projects. They contribute to Esad s Research Centre for graphic design, typography and language. The school offers a specialist environment for graphic design with access to a collection of documents and archives (historical and theoretical studies, specimens, catalogues). It organizes themed exhibitions, study days, conferences and master classes. It also works in partnership with a specialist publishing house. Students participate in workshops and take part in at least one foreign study trip a year.
3 Teaching program The personnal research project Each student carries out a personal project on typeface design, or a project which explores issues related to language and typography. They must be able to outline the different elements involved : theoretical research, experimentation, context, support, use The research is backed up by a research paper. Documentary research is used to explore the arguments and issues. The different practical stages of the project s development are also exhibited. It should be noted that the study of non-latin writing and their typographic adaptation is a valid research topic. Many typefaces and multiscript typographic families are created each year as part of the course: Latin, Thai, Arab, Chinese, Vietnamese, Cyrillic, Bengali. The type design workshop The workshop is an introduction to type design and uses calligraphy and various writing techniques as a starting point. It offers a range of approaches and design phases: type design, digitizing, software training Each student acquires skills according to their level (beginners are accepted on the course) in such a way that they can rapidly develop their abilities and apply them to their personal project and eventually use them professionally to create contemporary typefaces.
4 Teaching program History of typography This theoretical component covers many different aspects: lectures, presentation of documents around current topics, meetings with designers, discovery and study of historical collections from the Louis Aragon Library in Amiens, design and creation of publications Each student is also invited to present texts and works relating to their research topic. Students can focus on research or more pragmatically enrich their field of study. Initiation to linguistics This introductory course to linguistics offers students a semiological approach to linguistic signs by underlining the oral dimension. Vocal, acoustic, gestural and symbolic dimensions of language are covered as well as questions on iconicity and graphematic specificities. Study trips Each year students take part in a study trip. This is generally to Great Britain (Reading, London), the Netherlands (Amsterdam, The Hague) or Berlin (TypoBerlin). They regularly participate in events in France such as Rencontres de Lure or the Printemps de la Typographie organised by the École supérieure Estienne. Participation in events Students help set up certain study days, master classes and exhibitions as these experiences will allow them to develop professional skills and to collaborate with renowned typeface designers.
5 Course schedule, finished work The postgraduate course is full time. Students have a weekly meeting with the permanent staff and throughout the course they meet national and international designers. For the rest of their schedule, students find a good balance between time spent on lessons, writing their thesis and working on their project. At the end of their postgraduate studies, the student presents the following elements to an examination panel: a personal project on character design which will be presented in several ways: vive voce (oral presentation), specimens both in print and digital form, posters; a written thesis on the work showing its historical, theoretical and practical development over time, (between and characters). The work is presented to a panel made up of permanent members of staff and international designers. It is followed by a joint exhibition of the work of all the class.
