A Reception of The Finest Type
The Type Show was a success! An abundance of interest and a lack of technical issues contributed to a dynamite reception, where guests were treated to finger-foods and the much anticipated ‘Tang Fountain’. Of course the food was no competition for the magnificent display of typographic artworks.
On display for less than two weeks, due to the show’s unique location, and displayed in its entirety for only one night, due to fire restrictions, the Type Show has now been completely dismantled and exists now only in our photographs and in our minds. Thank you to all who participated, exhibited, and had the time to view Mass Art’s Graphic Design Society’s Type Show.

$200 Budget / Hello Newcomers
Hello folks, this is the first post on the new Graphic Design Society (G.D.S.) blog.
We’re a group of students at the Massachusetts Colleg of Art and Design in Boston, MA.
We take a special interest in graphic deisgn, and have come together to perpetuate its appreciation and practice in our community here in Boston, MA.
This first post will be about how our budget has been cut from 1700 dollars (or seventeen hundred dollars) to 200 dollars (or two one-hundred dollar bills).
We’re determined to earn a larger budget by impressing the Massart/College of the Fenway Schools by showing what we can do with $200.
First we will host a late November gallery show themed around Typography and Hand Lettering. And later we will be going on a design firm tour around Boston open to GDS members.
We’re also open for freelance work, for no compensation. All money would go into the production of the finished materials. Contact us at GDS@Massart.edu.
