Meta Newhouse: Confessons of a Type Nerd

Meta Newhouse, former Creative Director of GroupBaronet in Dallas, Texas, has designed work for clients such as Dallas County Community Colleges, The Dallas Symphony, Motorola, and The American Heart Association. Her work has been recognized nationally and internationally in 22 books and 17 design annuals (PRINT, Communication Arts, AIGA, Graphis, HOW). She is also the Founding Director of DSEL (the Design Sandbox of Engaged Learning) — Montana State University’s collaborative teaching and learning initiative focused on bringing interdisciplinary opportunities to undergraduate students. DSEL’s mission is to do nothing short of transforming the educational experience at MSU, by empowering students to apply design thinking to solve relevant problems.

Meta is also a self-professed typography nerd. Her type-based research has led to presentations at ATypI (Helsinki, Reykjavik, Barcelona), TypeCon (Denver) and FaceForward (Dublin). She loves teaching students how to use type to communicate their ideas, as well as slightly more subversive ways to communicate such as guerrilla advertising.
