Type x Graphic Design: Global Typography

The Type x Graphic Design: Global Typography is part of the Fresh Dialogue event series focusing on global type and design, discussing current events, cultural relevance and emerging topics in the world of design.

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.

Ksenya Samarskaya is a creative practitioner and type designer, following her fascination with the nuances inherent in our visual and literary culture. She will moderate a panel that includes Wael Morcos (Morcos Key), Chris Wu (Wkshps), and Caspar Lam & YuJune Park (Synoptic Office) to discuss the global aspects of typography. The discussion will cover 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?

The event takes place on 21 November 2019 between 6:30pm—8:30pm at the John L. Tishman Auditorium, 63 Fifth Avenue
