Richard Luna

Adjunct Assistant Professor

Richard is in his fourth career: he began as a medical & technical writer/editor; then was in book, magazine & advertising typesetting, perfecting his typographic skills at Photo-Lettering, then the finest type studio in its day. 

He began his electronic publishing career when he bought his first computer, a MacPlus in 1985 while working as a CSR in a typeshop. In 1987 he produced the largest product created in QuarkXPress in the country, a history of The First Unitarian Church of Brooklyn. 

This led to a job as manager of Mac applications at a large prepress organization, where he advised & trained company staff and customers on how to take advantage of the electronic publishing revolution.

He left to set up LunaGraphics Associates, a consulting & training company working with magazine, ad agencies & design firms. That was the beginning of his teaching career. It's estimated that he has taught Quark, InDesign, Photoshop & electronic typography to more than 2,000 people.

Richard teaches Design Procedures I and Design Procedures II.
