My name is Miklós Ferencz. I’m a graphic designer turned typographer. I’m the sort of person who when ‘puts pen to paper’, draws letters instead of writing words.
Typography and book design are what truly float my boat, but I’m always on the prowl for exciting web design ideas and new experimental mediums. I also have a slew of experiences under my belt that attest to my perennial love for learning and discovery. If you’d like to know more about me, here’s a quick rundown:
I did typographic research at the Atelier National de Recherche Typographique (ANRT), Nancy, France; I earned my Master of Arts degree in Graphic Design at Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design, Budapest (MOME); I studied graphic design for a year at Haute École des Arts du Rhin, Strasbourg (HEAR), at the graduate level; and I spent a year in St. Joost University, Breda, doing experimental design and studying conceptual graphic design.
I diligently toiled as an art-director and a full time graphic designer in Budapest for a while, but I also worked as a freelance graphic designer taking on a spade of exciting projects. I’ve done work for the European Parliament in Brussels, the Central Theater and Metro4 in Budapest, the Shearsman Books, University College London and Boiler House Press in the UK, Blue Pearl Stone in Chicago, Illinois. My work entailed custom typefaces, visual identities, posters, pamphlets, websites, books and a multitude of other stints.
