So I recently talked with the legendary Kris Sowersby, and he suggested this school to further my education in typography. I am writing the head of the school to find out what I have to do to apply. so yeah, I might be studying over seas again!
Check out some of what the school is doing here, if you feel like it.

This is my final project for my digital type class here in nz. It is along the lines of a type advertisement for my typeface. I hope you enjoy it.
Please remember that this is all set by hand. I haven't put the font into fontlab yet so the kerning and leading are a little off. Also, I forgot to take a picture of my poster, so you will just have to suffer with this jpeg.
