Communication design students use letterforms to create beautiful images of Cleveland landmarks.
For generations, CIA students have created images of Cleveland landmarks in paint, pencil, ink, and photography. Only over the last four years, though, have they been asked to render the city’s hot spots in type.
Type City Cleveland is a collaboration between CIA and font provider Veer through which students in the Advanced Studio course offered by CIA’s Communication Design Department create images using Veer fonts that represent the atmosphere of the venue depicted. The images are judged by a panel of design professionals and made available for purchase on the Type City website.
Adjunct faculty member and professional designer Chris Ramsay initiated this annual project in 2007 after a Veer printed piece highlighting some of the company’s typefaces gave him goose bumps. “It hit me within seconds that I had to bring this type of project to my class,” Ramsay said.
