Event description


About This Event

It’s our third typographic show n’ tell event, powered by PechaKucha. Presenters will speak on the topics of hand lettering, custom letterforms, packaging typography, pub sign history, virtual reality, the type of protests and more.

PechaKucha, or ‘chit chat’ in Japanese, was developed by Klein Dytham Architecture, in Tokyo back in 2003. PechaKucha nights now run all over the world. It’s a simple quick-fire format – presenters show 20 images, each for 20 seconds.

Join us and our friends at the Los Angeles Is Just My Type Meetup for a fast-paced night of type inspiration featuring established typographers and budding designers alike.
