The student-produced temporary show, 85_15 TYPOGRAPHY: PAST/PRESENT/FUTURE, will be the first exhibition to be presented by the new Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography (HMCT), which will make its official debut Nov. 7 with an opening celebration at ArtCenter's South Campus.

The immersive experience an alphabet soup of letters and familiar icons and signage, hawking everything from the latest blockbuster to cheap, fast cash loans.

Students in Graphic Design’s Summer 2015 Information Design class worked with Professor Simon Johnston, who also serves as the HMCT’s Creative Director, to create a series of installations that convey the ways in which typography informs every aspect of the way we communicate and navigate our society, and vice versa.
