Type Electives is an online design school shaping the future of type.

Co-founded by Lynne Yun and Juan Villanueva, Type Electives offers courses that go beyond traditional type design education.

We offer a wide range of live online classes focused on letterforms, including type design, lettering, and creative technology. Our faculty is made up of people who approach their practice from a place of respect, responsibility, criticality, and love. We're excited to work with students interested in exploring a future founded in these principles.
