A communication designer who specializes in typography, Segalini studied and practiced graphic design and calligraphy in Milan, Helsinki, Philadelphia, Rome, and Izmir. ¶ He was born in Piacenza, Italy, and currently lives in San Marcos, Texas. He teaches typography and type design at Texas State University and is the typographer for Contra Mundum Press, a boutique publisher based in New York & Paris that specializes in world literature and other genres. Segalini co-created ISType (Istanbul Type Seminars), a lecture and workshop series devoted to encouraging typographic literacy in Turkey. ¶ In regards to education, he believes that knowledge is constructed by the learner through action—it is mediate, not immediate. Education is a process of living, and not a preparation for future living. With his wife Esen they are watching Elisa & Andrea growing up. ❦
