Speaker Matthieu Cortat
Matthieu Cortat is a type designer working on retail and custom fonts he distributes via the foundries Nonpareille and 205tf. Since 2016, he has been the Head of Master Type Design at ECAL, University of Art and Design Lausanne, Switzerland. Within this MA program, Cortat tries to develop a pedagogy fitted for the contemporary type design scene, reflecting on the evolutions of the society and the changes in design practice. This may include artificial intelligence (AI) in the near future. Cortat will bring his thoughts on the AIZI project, the first attempt at ECAL MATD to deal with these questions.
