Director, Center for Design & Typography; Adjunct Professor
Mindy Lang has been affiliated with The Cooper Union for twenty-five years, first as a student and later as a designer and educator. She was hired in 1982 as a teaching assistant in Graphic Design after completing her BFA in the School of Art. Currently an Assistant Professor, Lang teaches a Professional Practice class, in which Graphic Design students complete assignments for non-profit organizations for academic credit. "The day a living, breathing client is attached to a project, the design process changes for a student." Lang enjoys teaching the skills to negotiate that process, as well as conceptual and typographic development.
Clients supported by recent student efforts via Lang's Professional Practice class have included: City Lore, Bellevue Hospital, The Center for Book Arts, Cancer Care, The Bronx Museum of Art, Urban Glass and The Waterford Institute.
Lang wears another hat at The Cooper Union, as Director of the Center for Design and Typography. Since 1992, Lang has overseen the design and production of the majority of the institution's publications and print materials, working collaboratively with faculty, administration and students. "Being and in-house designer for any institution or corporation involves a certain amount of repetition. I am fortunate that Cooper's ever-changing student population and programming always makes for challenging and fulfilling work."
