Design exhibit explores typography


Special to The Sun

EDMOND — The University of Central Oklahoma Department of Design will present “Type Talks: An Exhibition of Student Experiments with Typography” opening with a free, open-to-the-public reception from 4-5:30 p.m. Oct. 24 in the Donna Nigh Gallery, located on the third floor of the Nigh University Center.           

“Typography is an integral skill for all graphic designers and one that is required in design curriculum worldwide,” said Ruki Ravikumar, chair of the Department of Design. 

This exhibit will feature a variety of projects showcasing sophomore and junior students in the design program who have explored innovative, memorable techniques of typography and have created their own original styles.          

“Typography is a skill that is often underestimated or overlooked by those outside the field as it appears to just be text on a page; however, there is a lot more to typography than mere font selection,” Ravikumar explained.           

This exhibit will be on display through Nov. 24.
