Adé Hogue Scholarship
Broderick “Adé” Hogue was a Chicago-based art director and letterer as passionate about the sport of cycling as he was about the intricacies of design — and with a drive to foster diversity in both worlds. Tragically, he was killed last October at the age of 32, after being struck by a van while cycling in Chicago’s Near North Side. What followed was an outpouring of grief from the communities that Adé touched, and a desire to help continue his creative legacy.
In cooperation with the newly established Broderick Adé Hogue Foundation, the Type Directors Club has rechristened its Superscript Scholarship in Adé’s honor. Sponsored by Monotype, the Adé Hogue Scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding US-based BIPOC student currently in their junior year of college or in their first year of graduate or postgraduate school. The recipient of this scholarship must demonstrate exceptional talent, sophistication, and promise in the creation and design of letterforms, be they typeface, lettering, or calligraphy. The scholarship, valued at $5,000 USD, will be applied to the recipient’s final year tuition, beginning in September 2022.
