Typolitic is an online forum conceived by Inkahoots to showcase and discuss the best socially and politically focused undergraduate typographic work from around the world. Typolitic features contributions from several leading designers, typographers and writers whose work is referenced in students’ courses. Their commentary provides a unique ongoing pedagogical forum with a fascinating feedback loop between the studied and the student. Also commenting are several guest experts from outside the field. The blog itself argues implicitly for the teaching of typography and design generally as an intrinsically political medium.
The site's creation was very gratefully assisted by Luke Robertson & Aaron Gillett. Development was by Matt Lenz of Ha-lf, Inkahoots' Mat Johnson and Feral Arts' Bhu Vidya.
