Funfonts Exhibition

‘Funfonts’ is a public-facing typographic exhibition by first-year Visual Communication students in the Dublin School of Creative Arts. It showcases a series of outcomes generated from a project spanning Typography and Design Applications modules. The project is designed to introduce students to the diverse range of facilities and opportunities offered by the DSCA. Using analogue means—papercuts and drawing—students investigate the design and construction of letterforms and develop an awareness of the visual grammar of type design. Their designs are digitally recreated, refined and reproduced in a broad range of media.

Curated and designed by Brenda Dermody and Louise Reddy the exhibition presents over 80 letterforms developed by 39 students working in the design studios, printmaking and 3D workshops. The exhibition includes an edition of silk-screened postcards, adhesive vinyl, laser cut card and an exquisite set of laser-cut acrylic characters displayed in custom-made vitrines, all produced on campus. This public exhibition will be displayed by the DSCA throughout 2019/2020 at TU Dublin cultural and industry events and open days.

With thanks to Anthony Collins, Mark Ennis, Liam Sharkey, Peter Maybury and John Walsh for their help and expertise.
