On November 7th, Mark visited the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY and gave a presentation about JamraPatel’s work in the design of typefaces in different scripts. This was a part of RIT’s annual Design Conversations / Vignelli Legacy lecture series. The presentation showed the development of Phoreus Cherokee and also the design process for our African type system, currently in progress. On the following day, Mark spoke to ca. 60 typography students in RIT’s graphic design program about the design of typefaces. The trip also included visits to the Vignelli archives and the Cary Graphic Arts Collection.
