AIGA + Pablo Medina’s Experimental Type Students Collaborate on Haiti Benefit

Written by:


Can Collaboration Help Haiti?

On Thursday, January 28th, AMT Faculty Pablo Medina gave a tough assignment to the 15 students in his Experimental Typography class at Parsons The New School for Design: Use the medium of typography to help Haiti.

Students are now working in pairs to satisfy the assignment. Each pair has one week to come up with 15 ideas and one more week to execute the very best of those 15 ideas.

On March 11th, Pablo and his students will jointly present each of the final solutions. At the end of the presentation, the audience will vote for the most successful project and that project will – in the following weeks – be executed to achieve the ultimate goal: to help Haiti.

Please join the AIGA and the Museum of Arts and Design for this special event in their “Collaboration” event series. All event proceeds will be donated to Yéle Haiti.
