AIGA NY | Type x Graphic Design ~ Relationships & Collaboration

The Auditorium, Room A106, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall
General Public 

A night of candid (and nerdy!) conversation between graphic and type designers. Graphic designers and type designers need each other (aww!). Our relationship is a powerful force that shapes the typographic landscape. And yet, we never get together. It’s time we talked.

Join Elizabeth Carey SmithJune ShinLisa SmithNina Stössinger, and YuJune Park on March 27th where we’ll be catching up and shedding light on our unique and collaborative process. The speakers will be giving a brief presentation of their creative processes, and will gather around for a panel discussion. We’ll be covering a range of questions, including:

  • How do graphic designers find and select typefaces?

  • What do type designers have in mind when they’re designing new ones?

  • How do custom typefaces come to life?

Type designers and graphic designers: a meeting is long overdue. Let’s talk!
