Types and Characters: Glyfyx at CCA

Types and Characters at CCA

Just yesterday the Glyfyx (aka PSY/OPS) crew visited California College of the Arts’ type design exhibition Types and Characters. The exhibit was beautifully curated by three students of Jon Sueda‘s Advanced Design Exhibition class. Impressive work.

The exhibit featured three of CCA’s amazing type anchors (who were also interviewed in the latest issue of Glance magazine) Bob Afouldish, James T. Edmondson, and our very own Rod Cavazos. They answered tough lettering and typography questions posed by a large crowd of what can only be called “type nerds.”

A small selection of work by Rod and PSY/OPS was displayed at CCA, including Glyfyx’ retro-pixelated wooden Bitblox.

The exhibit also showcased seven years of student work done in Rod’s type design course in which students start the class sketching the letters on napkins, and leave with their very own workable typeface.

The Exhition Design students Christopher Jordan, Tracy Liu & Tori Stoudt also designed a beautiful book to accompany the exhibit which will be available on Blurb in the coming weeks. We’ll let you know when it’s available for sale.
