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 Smith, June Shin, Lisa Smith, Nina 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.
Type and print designer Elizabeth Carey Smith drops many wisdom bombs in this TheFutur interview on having a long, relevant and meaningful career in design. ECS talks about staying engaged, worklife balance, financial security and the basics of learning how to adult too. Its a wonderfully insightful feature.
Explaining that the Type Directors Club is “the only place in the world that I know of where an audible gasp can be heard among the audience when the speaker is explaining, say, the difference between tabular and proportional figures. I love all my design colleagues, but the TDC are my peeps, you know?”
Have you ever walked past a hand-drawn sign and thought that it would make a great typeface?
