LIVE & LEARN: What’s your type?

These are two excerpts from the Westender about the Advanced Typography Certificate program:
“There are just no programs that are dealing with where design’s going to be in five years,” says Gruendler, who played a large part in planning the coursework for the programs (the first classes launched in September of last year). “We’re teaching classes that no other program in Canada is teaching. We wanted to make sure that we could be what the students needed it to be, and that’s the advantage of continuing education: We can react quite quickly to the market and to society and what’s happening in the profession.”

Juan Madrigal, 37, is taking classes as part of the Advanced Typography program. He currently works in communications for the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada, and as a catalogue designer for Mountain Equipment Co-op. “I finished design [school] more than 10 years ago, and this was a really good way to go back to school. I had been looking for a program like this [for years],” he says. “Being a designer, if you stop your knowledge process, if you stop learning new things, your career’s over.”
