Andrew Bogard, Graphic designer

Being part of the Practica Program was an amazing experience and a perfect complement to my type design education. I’ve learned a lot with the superb instructors Nicole and Sol, that are generous in sharing their knowledge. We also had a great team of visiting lecturers that were carefully chosen and made this experience unique.

Filipe Negrão, Graphic designer and professor

I joined Practica being a display font addict. I came out just as addicted but able to handle a text version‚ and a system, and more than one style. And on top of that: I learned how to cry, drink wine, and break everything I draw while keeping my masters compatible 💅

Fer Cozzi, Type designer

Nicole and Sol are incredible teachers, leading thoughtful and engaging lectures as well as honest and valuable critiques. They are kind and you can tell they want to see everyone succeed. The group of visiting experts are top-notch type thinkers that opened the door to their process and work in an intimate way. But best of all was the cohort of fellow type designers who came to learn from this circle of experts. I really enjoyed the course, learned a ton, and improved my sense of typography, drafting, tools, and process. Thank you Nicole and Sol!
