OSNS offers a range of classes, here is what's coming up in the next month.
Old School New School is structured to empower students to bring their individuality into their design practice when they work by hand.
The Program runs over 5 weeks and is Australia's only dedicated Type Design course.
OSNS has a variety of events happening at the School, including Exhibitions, Talks and more, focusing on adding to and building the design and typography community.
Here we publish work produced at the school, research and writing on typography and design.

I love typography. I love calligraphy. I love brush script. And Veronica has made me love them even more. Veronica is an amazing inspiration for type and design – keeping the hand created spirit alive.
The Abbotsford convent studio is a lovely place to learn and Veronica is a great teacher.
The past 13 weeks have been “epic”… a word, which I don’t use often, a word I’m not sure is capable of genuinely describing my time here. I’ve realised there’s not a day that goes by where I’m not thinking about design, the new skills I’m learning or a new way of seeing where OSNS have influenced me.
Old School is different in every sense. Old School is how I imagined my own Interior Design schooling would be, and it is also how I imagined I wanted to teach design when I was in a teaching role.
The experimental curriculum of Typography as Design Culture Program ignites passion and skills in typography. The course has pushed me immensely and fed those parts of me that attracted me to visual design in the first place: a curiosity of how the world is and could be, a love of using a pen or pencil, a desire to not just be a trained conduit for corporate voices but to make meaningful work that mattered and moved people in ways that surprised and delighted.
Having witnessed numerous OSNS classes / workshops / events (as well as being a student) and it is safe to say Veronica is truly passionate about typography and design.
OSNS is ace. It’s an incredible place of learning and community. There are classes to suit a range of skills and interests, and you’re guaranteed a comprehensive understanding of not just typography and letterform, but the history, tools and techniques behind letterform.
