We’ll kick off the Working Late event series with a discussion between Frank Chimero and Jen Mussari, focusing on how they use type in both physical and digital mediums, and how they work type into the larger context of their design processes. The discussion will be moderated by Tim Brown of Typekit.
Come hungry: included in the price of your ticket* are chicken and grilled veggie skewers from Inglorivs Project as well as beer.
*All ticket sales are being donated to a local charity, which means you'll be meeting rad designers, having a nice snack, and helping the local community in one fell swoop.
About Frank Chimero
Frank Chimero is a designer who writes. His practice focuses on design systems that bridge digital and analog. In 2011, he was honored with the Art Directors Club Young Guns award and featured in Print Magazine’s New Visual Artist issue, highlighting twenty designers under the age of thirty. In 2012, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, he self-published The Shape of Design, a design theory anti-textbook about making things for other people.
