Vysokovsky Graduate School of Urbanism (GSU) is a learning and research division of the Faculty of Urban and Regional Development of the National Research University Higher School of Economics. Founded in 2011, the School takes a multidisciplinary approach towards studying and planning modern cities, using the excellent foundation that one of Russia’s top universities has formed in the humanities and socioeconomics. The School’s mission is to create a centre in Russia for learning and research in urban studies and urban planning. It is envisioned that this centre will respond to the needs of the 21st century city and the corresponding era of megacities that are home to tens of millions of people with diverse interests and aspirations. These are cities where sources of information grow and the space for civil, creative, and economic opportunities expands. From 2016 the School is officially named in honor of its first dean and one of the founders — Alexander Vysokovsky (1948-2014).

Svyat Vishnyakov: ‘Text as Image in Posters’
The role of typography on poster always differs. Text can support illustration or image, create complex pattern, form a decorative frame. In most cases typography serves as a functional layer and picture shows the main idea.
The lecture will be dedicated to approach called ‘Text as Image’ where text becomes the main hero and combines physical attributes with power of words. Svyat will present the international posters which use this approach and will share his own experience, how to use only typography to generate meanings and create a unique poster.
Svyat Vishnyakov – graphic designer, worked at the Shuka Design Bureau, The Bakery, Ony and berlin-based studio Onlab. Svyat is a lecturer in British Higher School of Design and Bangbang Education School. His work has a focus on printed matter, graphic identities, editorial and web design.
