“Because the teaching of the craft is once again being taken seriously, and consequently it is debated how to set type in a powerful way that establishes meaning, there is a great deal of experimentation in Switzerland at the moment. Many new typefaces are being created … graphic designers and type designers are talking to each other again,” says designer Jonas Vögeli.
Poster illustrations, magazines, corporate identity, and digital scripting projects for interactive design are some of the work on display in the Compton Gallery, located in the main MIT building at 77 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge. The gallery is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. daily; admission is free. A hardcover catalog with essays and photographic reproductions will be on sale at the MIT Museum Store for $20.
