SARATOGA SPRINGS — The new Schick Gallery exhibition “True to Type” presents selections from designers and muralists Annica Lydenberg and Lynne Yun, through Dec. 2.

Lydenberg and Yun bring a passion for type design to their client work and their own art. In addition to operating their own design firms, both are deeply dedicated to education and making a social impact. “True to Type” features both their personal and commercial work, including four new murals created on site.

Lydenberg is a Brooklyn-based designer, illustrator, and sign painter who graduated from Skidmore College in 2000 with a degree in studio art. She founded Dirty Bandits, now a web design firm, in 2003 as a T-shirt company, then completed the Type@Cooper typeface design program at Cooper Union and honed skills in hand lettering and sign painting. Lydenberg is also one of the founders of the collaborative You Are Not Alone mural project. Inspired by compassion for those struggling with mental health issues, it offers support to anyone feeling misunderstood, victimized, or abandoned. 

From crafting calligraphic pieces to designing type for the screen, Yun enjoys the balancing act of form and function that is required when designing tools for communication. Yun is a New York City-based type designer, educator, technologist, and a founder of Space Type, a studio practice operating at the intersection of type and technology. Previously, Yun worked as a type designer for Monotype, where she created custom typefaces for clients and retail. She also worked as a graphic designer for Apple Inc., Publicis, and Deutsch, and past clients include Google, Samsung, Anheuser-Busch, and the World Trade Center. Yun has served on the boards of the American Institute of Graphic Arts and the Society of Scribes, and she regularly teaches for institutions such as Type@Cooper and Parsons School of Design.

The Schick Gallery at Skidmore College is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
