History

The Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography [HMCT] at ArtCenter College of Design was founded in 2015 in memory of Professor Leah Hoffmitz Milken, a well-known typographer, letterform designer and esteemed faculty member at ArtCenter. HMCT was created to be a home and a catalyst for the enhanced study of typography and letterform design. HMCT serves as an educational forum, a design laboratory, a research center and archive, as well as being a meeting place for learning, discussion, and the exchange of ideas and skills. HMCT holds workshops and special classes, symposia, lectures, exhibitions, and residency programs dedicated to all aspects of the typographic field.
