Event description
Creating a Global Typographic Language

About this Event

Digital communication allows us to reach beyond geographic and typographical barriers. What does it mean to practice design and typography when nationalities, languages, and scripts are in constant interaction? This panel discussion brings together designers whose work stretches beyond Latin typography to share their perspectives on designing for a global world.

Join Ksenya Samarskaya (Samarskaya & Partners), Wael Morcos (Morcos Key), Chris Wu (Wkshps), Caspar Lam & YuJune Park (Synoptic Office) on Nov 21st where we’ll be discussing the global aspects of typography. Each panelist will have 15 minutes to present their work followed by a 30 minute moderated discussion.

We’ll be covering a range of questions, including:

  • How do these projects begin?
  • Why is this work important?
  • How do you respectfully design as a non-native reader?
  • How do you harmonize between scripts that have different cultural/visual history?
