They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But is that even the case anymore? As the way we view content changes and as the desire to receive information on mobile devices grows, our experiences are increasingly stripped down to only the necessary elements. And while content remains king, how we visualize it has become even more important. Join us for a summer afternoon as industry leaders address how technology affects human behavior and the resulting impact on design and typography. Type Directors Club, in partnership with Sullivan, have curated this symposium based on their shared passion for crafting meaningful experiences with typography.
Oliver Reichenstein, iA, Tokyo, Zurich, Berlin
Oliver Reichenstein is the founder and director of Information Architects, the Tokyo, Zurich, and Berlin-based design agency. “I was never satisfied with the state of the web. Websites were — and still are — always too noisy for my taste. I didn’t really understand what was missing until I discovered typography.” iA has created its new website with responsive typography and a custom-built responsive typeface.
