Thursday October 11th – 'Empowerment'

Dr. Nadine Chahine, Principal, Arabictype will present "The Branding of Brexit"

Abstract: The vote on June 23, 2016 was a divisive moment in British history, driven by fierce campaigning by both sides. This talk will look at the variety of reasons (historical and current) why the vote turned out the way it did, and uses those as a way to judge the efficacy of the design campaigns of the two sides.

Mike Abbink, executive creative director at IBM, will present how to empower the design process by designing a typeface that is truly bespoke. IBM Plex, designed by Mike, is based on building a framework for design decisions that empowers both the functionality and meaningful expression of a typeface. Paul Barnes, co-founder of Commercial Type, is an expert on the importance of design and typography in news media and branding. Ty Drake is a design educator and graphic design professional based in Los Angeles, and currently serves on the faculty of ArtCenter.

The presentations will be followed by our audience Q&A moderated by Patrick Burgoyne, editor, Creative Review
