Nina Stoessinger, Critic

Nina Stoessinger is a type-obsessed designer originally from Basel, Switzerland. She graduated in multi-media design from Burg Giebichenstein University of Art Halle/Germany in 2008, where she discovered her love for type, and went on to receive a CAS in Type Design from Zurich University of the Arts in 2010 and an MA in Type and Media from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague in 2014. After seven years of running her own studios for graphic design, typography, type design, and code in Switzerland and then the Netherlands, she moved to Brooklyn in the summer of 2016, where she is now a Senior Typeface Designer at Frere-Jones Type. Nina enjoys tinkering with code and words and new ideas, and teaches and speaks internationally. Her own type designs include FF Ernestine, Sélavy, and Nordvest. She was appointed critic in graphic design at Yale in 2016.
