The Alan Kitching exhibition is now up and running in Fox 4, Falmouth Campus (and looking great).
Alan Kitching and Monotype:
The Alan Kitching Collection pays tribute to five influential designers, Tom Eckerlsey, Abram Games, FHK Henrion, Josef Müller-Brockmann and Paul Rand. Each designer is represented by a monogram made from overlapping type – in each case a wood letter from Alan Kitching’s workshop with a famous character from the Monotype archive. Each reference the designer in some way, through colour, composition and the typefaces used.
Competition for our students:
Design your own monogram
Monotype would like to invite you to take part in a competition to design your very own monogram. Your monogram should be rendered in such a way that it tells us something about you as a designer or creative – unique to you.
Use one letter from the typefaces used in the Alan Kitching Collection, together with one other. The second letter can come from anywhere: another typeface, hand-drawn, a found letter – it’s up to you!
Pick up a blank template here or for Falmouth staff and students simply download the PDF templates from the Learning Space: here
