We are happy to update that we are getting close to the relaunch of the Alphabettes mentorship program! We are now actively seeking new mentors.
About the Alphabettes mentorship program
We are building a database of professionals willing to mentor less experienced people in the fields of type, typography, and the lettering arts. The aim is to give guidance to students and new professionals by sharing experiences and knowledge. Most mentees ask for portfolio guidance and career or educational advice. Some people simply look for a sounding board or an opportunity to discuss type related topics and to understand how they can get more involved in the lettering and type communities.
We check in periodically to ensure everyone is still happy with the arrangement and encourage both the mentor and the mentee to contact us if the relationship is not working for some reason. We would like to emphasise that the mentors are not expected to provide private tutoring or consultation. The program is open to everyone in our field, depending on demand, we may give preference to underrepresented groups.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions and we promise we will get back to you as soon as we can.
