    Eileen Cowin is an artist who sees living as a means to break boundaries, and psychology as a way to confront us with strange attitudes or to implicate us in seemingly self-imposed spatial confinements. –Art Papers April 2007 by Eve Wood

Building a Type Library
Each semester Typography students within Communication Arts are asked to acquire a typeface in an effort to begin building their personal type libraries. Students must provide a copy of the font’s user license or a copy of the purchase receipt to his or her Typography instructor.

To make this process easier the Department has acquired a few typefaces for student use (listed below). Students can pick up their copy in the Learning Lab after signing an End User Licensing Agreement (EULA). Unlike typefaces purchased by students, the following fonts are technically on loan to a student while she or he is a student at Otis. As outlined in the EULA students sign, the fonts can be used for educational purposes and on class-based projects only.

Typecuts

  • DasDeck
  • Haircrimes
  • Switch
  • Volvox
  • WeddingSans


In addition, the Department has put together this list of recommended foundries with typefaces at a variety of price points. Students are asked to speak with their Typography instructor before purchasing any typeface to ensure the choice meets class requirements.
